i am curious because i'd like to apply for a green or gold card at some point to get my foot in the door with AmEx and ultimately apply for a blue cash. i'm trying to gauge if having a charge card increases your likelihood of getting approved for a credit card.
The answer is yes. Having a green card is very good for your credit report. It should help you get any credit card in the world (within reason of course) because you pay your bill in full. The other way around might not work.L et's say you started out with Bue Cash and your other cards, but now you want a premium card that a lot of businessmen carry. I can't guarantee you would get a green card even if you have a blue cash.
But I can guarantee that if you have the Green Card with your other cards and you want a Blue Cash it will work.
