The program will roll out over the next few days." [more inside]

American Express's highly publicized Members Project
has come to an end. A novel idea: Cardmembers nominated and voted for charities--and the nominee with the most votes won $2 mil. The winner? Children's Safe Drinking Water,
that works with nonprofits to battle the public health crisis of contaminated drinking water in third-world countries by distributing water purification kits. Why on earth would anyone call foul on this? Bear with me here. [more inside]

Unknowingly sending all your personal finance information through the servers of a sleazy ad service: Priceless.
Do you pay your AMEX bill online at americanexpress.com
? If you do, you should know that you're being ported through the ad.doubleclick.net advertising service
. Mouse over the links on the AMEX homepage and see. All your information travels through doubleclick's servers on its way to AMEX. Nice, huh?
