Tried to use my Amex card at Lowes this morning and it was declined twice, had to write a check. Called them right away and the automated system said to expect a long wait so I hung up. Made me wonder if it was a problem with their system... Called back just now, and sure enough, they were having widespread problems this morning that caused good cards to be declined. The guy said everything is back to normal now. Anyone else get hit by this?
