I got the Blue card when I was 19. I'm now 22 and it's done great for my credit record. I've always made my payments on every credit card I've had on time and the thing is a lot of credit card companies don't reward you for that. American Express does. I started out with a $2,000 credit limit which is appropriate for a 19 year old with limited credit history. Just a year after I had it they had already more than doubled that to $4,500. Now it's $12,000 which I think is great. I never carry a balance so it doesn't really matter except that it looks good on your credit record. I also like the fact that American Express believed in me to give me credit limits like that when no one else would. Because of that, not to mention their customer service, they've definitely got a loyal customer for life from me.
