Will AMEX cancel my card if...

Postby 432521 » Wed Aug 15, 2012 2:26 pm

So I have so many freaking cards I am not really sure if I am going ot be using my BCE, haven't really decided yet. I know you might be asking why then did I apply? I did so because I wanted to get the hard pulls out of the way in one clump instead of having them scattered. Will AMEX cancel my card if I don't use it and just leave it in my sock drawer? Should I just use it once a twice a month to be safe?

i don't think they will cancel your card. I have been with AEMX since 94, have my BCE since it started. but for the past few months, i hardly used it except maybe $50 a month vs. $3000 a month before. they didn't do anything. on top of that, i just requested to increase my cl from 30k to 50k two weeks, they gave me a option of $3500 inc or hard pull. so i took it.

so my conclusion is that they won't cancel your card, but maybe later reduce your cl, only maybe. another example, i also have discover more card since 2010 with 8000 cl, never charge one cent, nothing happen to it yet.
