New American Express card not detected by Mint (I have 5 "closed" Amex cards)

MY QUESTION: Mint has not detected and added my new Amex card. (Which I have been using almost every day for over a week.) Is there anything I can do to force Mint to notice the new card?

BACKGROUND: I am a Canadian Amex user.

I have 5 "closed" Amex cards (i.e. former cards I cancelled and marked as "closed" within Mint). Until a few weeks ago, I was only a "former Amex user" and didn't have a current card. A few weeks ago, I opened a new Amex credit card account, so I now have one "open" Amex credit card account as well.

Previously, Mint has been pretty good at noticing the new cards and adding them to my account list through my existing American Express login, which it accesses through the following URL: http://www.americanexpress.com/canada/en/homepage/default.shtml

MORE FACTS: My current Amex (and only open Amex) has the same product brand name as two of my previous (now closed) Amex accounts: "American Express AIR MILES Platinum Credit Card". Furthermore, it has the same 5 last digits as another of my former Amex cards. I don't know if this would confuse your system or not, but I'm providing it in case it can help you resolve the problem.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
