Amex Old Blue Cash shutdowns are being reported on flyertalk today.

Some people have reported getting the following email, having their card declined, or simply logging into their account and being notified there.

We are contacting you to be sure you do not have any surprises when you try to use your card. We wanted to let you know we have had to make the decision to close your account listed above.

Please tell any Additional Card Members on this account of this change so they do not have an unexpected inconvenience when attempting to use the Card.
You should also destroy the card(s) and any convenience checks you may have for the account(s).
If you have any recurring charges on these accounts such as cell phone charges, please contact that company immediately to ensure your other bills do not go unpaid.
You will also receive this information by letter, but we wanted to be sure you were aware of this change as soon as possible.

I have access to two old blue cash cards, and as of now both are still active.  Hopefully this is just a warning to us all and not a mass murder of MS.
