We have only had one that I'm aware of and that was with Avis getting double charged from her hair dresser.....Normally I wouldn't have picked it up but because she only goes every 6---8 weeks it stood out when it appeared twice.
I live of my charge card for work and personal expenses. I travel a fair bit so usual week of transactions has breakfast, lunch, dinner every day, airfares, cabs, car hire, hotel - anything that gets expensed back to the company.
I'm just glad that it didn't come out of my pocket. I've heard horror stories of people disputing charges on a Debit card only to be stuck without the money for 6 months+. You have to wonder, with an Amex it's their money so they fight for it. With a Debit card, it's your money - will the bank fight hard for it? Nope, not their problem.
