I have excellent credit, would I be crazy to try to upgrade to gold right now? (product change) I am new to Amex and didn't really know how much green would give me. Would it be wise to even apply for BCP as well?
You cannot pc to anything until the 13th month. At that point you can product change to any charge card you want. If you were approved for a Green it means you would've been approved for any of the charge cards. The only way to get it sooner would be to apply for it separately and cancelling the green, at the expense of another hard pull.
