I got approved for Gold Skymiles

Postby polamaluisraw43 » Sun Dec 09, 2012 4:40 pm

Hello all.

This is my first post, I have been lurking for quite sometime.

I just turned 21 in August. In September I applied for an amex green charge card and to my amazement was instantly approved. So I've had it for over three months now and I started wanting a revolving credit card from amex (I have a fifth third one that my parents cosigned for to start building my credit) I read on here that Gold Skymiles seemed to be the easiest to get so I went for it and was instantly approved!

I was only given a $2k limit but I'm okay with that. My question is what is the best way to get a CLI? I have no intentions on charging up a bunch of stuff but I want my credit report to show that I have a solid line of credit with low utilization (0% for the last 6 months, I simply do not charge things up. I use my charge card for all purchases.) Should I just spend as normal on it and pay in full every month?
Thank you!
