Question about Amex TrueEarnings

Postby pac4toon » Tue Sep 16, 2014 3:48 pm

Does getting an Amex TrueEarnings card automatically make you a Costco member? And do you think I will be able to PC my Amex Hilton Honors to the TrueEarnings? The HHonors been in the sock drawer for awhile now.
In my wallet:
AmEx PRG/ BoH Hawaiian Airlines WEMC / Chase Freedom /

In my sock drawer:
AmEx HHonors & BCE

No, "getting" the Amex TrueEarnings card does not automatically make you a Costco member - quite the opposite. You have to BE a Costco member to even be eligible for the TE. Meaning, at the time of application, you must be a Costco member. The card will also go away if you ever drop your Costco membership.

I don't know if you will be able to PC the HH card - it's a points card, whereas the TE is cashback. But you can give Amex a call and see - AFTER you get a Costco membership.
