How Many Amex Can You Have?

Postby ingramjuan » Sat Nov 22, 2014 11:27 pm

Currently I have an Amex Delta, but was thinking about adding an Amex Platinum. My question is how many AMEX cards will they allow you to have? I would like to keep my current Delta card

I have an AmEx Platinum, and an AmEx Delta card. AmEx appears all too happy to collect their annual fees and swipe fees, if that is of any help to you.
Current Cards:
AmEx Platinum Charge: NPSL, $450 AF
AmEx Reserve Credit: $30K limit, $450 AF
Chase Slate Visa Credit: $32K limit, No AF
Future Strategy:
Near Term: Need a good MasterCard for places that won't accept AmEx or Visa
Long Term: Will downsize out of one or both current AmEx cards to reduce AFs

Amex, as a general rule, will issue up to four revolvers to a single individual. You can have additional charge cards as well.

I currently have an Amex Gold Delta Skymiles card, an Amex ED card, and got approved for an Amex BCE today with no problem and also had a Green card at one point that I closed. If you have good history with Amex and your EX FICO looks good, I'd say go for the Platinum.

Definitely not a problem. IIRC the limit is around 5 but it is certainly more than just one.

Hello, I'm new to credit and looking to get a travel rewards card. I'm thinking about the Amex Blue Sky charge card. I heard it is better than frequent flyer cards cold, besides it has a rewards program that escapes many restrictions.

+1. And IIRC, they will allow up to 3 charge cards. This would be personal cards. One can have a mix of personal and business cards with AMEX and exceed that number, at least from anecdotal readings. Also, the co-branded cards on the AMEX network, such as Wells Fargo Propel don't count in the mix.
Retired, and in the process of retiring cards!
