Got my second Amex today - my story

Postby bperdeck » Thu Feb 28, 2013 1:32 am

Hey guys,

So today I was approved for my PRG! Really wanted this card for the double points on gas and groceries. I've been using my SPG for the past 6 months and built up a nice amount of points and business with Amex.

Started with a 2k limit in August of 2012 and was recently raised to 6k. A little background, I started building my credit at 18 (almost 2 years ago) with a college Wells Fargo credit card, used that for a year then applied for Amex and was approved with a score of around 720. When I applied for PRG I was around a 771!

For the young people out there, it's possible to build a good relationship with Amex no matter what your age!

Yeah I've loved amex. I got the blue cash everyday when I was 19 after having the BoA cash rewards for 1.5 years. This year as I'm 22 I just got the PRG and the delta gold.

I also have chase freedom, citi forward, discoverit, and still have the BoA cash rewards (now visa siggy)
Amex: MB Platinum, PRG, BCE
Chase: Chase Sapphire Preferred, Freedom
Citi: Forward
CapitalOne: VentureOne
Discover: DiscoverIT

Mileage Bonuses: Delta Gold, Delta Platinum Business, British Airways
