Any idea if the Blue is easier if you were a previous AmEx Blue cardholder? Credit Score is in low-mid 700's (720-760 range).
During my college/early adult years I signed up for every credit card offer that offered a signup bonus, reward, or in-store perk. I was very responsible with usage - no maxed/over limit cards and no late payments. Usually paid off balances within a 3-6 mth time frame or less. When I decided to par down, I have about 15+ cards (2 Visa, 2 MC, Discover, AmEx Blue and varies store cards). I decided to to with the card I had opened first and the card with the best rewards. Both cards were also my highest limit cards. One had the lowest interest rate. AmEx had the next lowest, but the rewards weren't nearly as good so I closed it.
I have returned to work and recently gotten into the reward programs. Really wishing I had kept my AmEx Blue now!
