However later in the year I starting receiving invitations for Amex cards; one for the Premier Rewards Gold card and one for the Blue Cash Everyday Card. Being only half a year after my denial I decided to give it another go and got approved!
I'm still going to keep my Capital One cards open to build a longer credit history, however I am stoked!
$200 back intro bonus and 15 months of 0% APR. I am thrilled! So thrilled I made an account to brag about it (as a short time lurker back in May)
That's great to hear. Do you know what your credit limit is? You can potentially get a 3x CLI two months after you opened the account.
