Transferring balances?

Postby Gamma » Wed Nov 14, 2012 2:03 am

NO I don't plan on doing so now or ever seeing how Amex hates people carrying large balances, but I was wondering if anyone has ever gotten a balance transfer offer before or even done a balance transfer with them. A side note, I do all my balance transfers with Citi :)

I have had my Blue for over 4 years and other than when I first opened the card I have never been offered a balance transfer. They used to send balance transfter checks but they put a kabosh on those during The Great Recession.

transfer offer

4 years ago I was offered a blue sky card, unsolicited offer this was after a bankruptcy with amex included in 94 they gave me a $3100 card with a 3.99 permanent interest rate I put 2k on the card paid them $50 a month as the amount was paid down they kept lowering my limit down to $1100 I paid the card off and then used it as a charge card maxing it out monthly eventually switching it to a blue cash card 2 years ago. after several limit requests and about $120k in charges over 3 years the limit is now 30k. use the card for everything you can and they will be very open to limit increases, I haven't received any other offers for balance transfers since. I guess it was a one time offer
