Switching from GOLD to a REVOLVER

Postby Vandalized2 » Wed Jun 26, 2013 1:16 am

Can you switch from a charge card to a different revolver after a certain amount of time? Or do you just have to apply for another card? I was just curious because I want to switch from my Gold to another AMEX revolver in two years. Is that a possibility?

No, you can only do charge to charge and revolver to revolver.

You'll have to apply and it will create a new account.

WELP! It looks like I will be going to Green in two years and upgrade my BCE to BCP.

I wouldn't even keep the Gold or Green. Both cards offer little to nothing to most people. AMEX has backdating, so you can cancel one of their cards.....apply for another and still have a solid date on it.

+1

I see no point in keeping a card with a few you don't have much use for. I agree that you should simply close the charge card and open another revolver. You might not have quite the spending power per month, but when does anyone really need to charge 20k+ in a month?
Scores on the mend...
FICO: 654 (7/2017, AMEX), Vantage: 663 (CK)
Cards I Use Amex Premier Rewards Gold, Discover IT, Capital One QuickSilver MC, Amex Gold Delta (for the free bag)
Sock Drawer Chase Amazon, AE Visa, CareCredit, several store cards for util padding
Next Card Amex Everyday
