I'm looking to join the Amex fam...

Postby Daddy » Tue Jul 16, 2013 8:04 am

I'm looking to dump my cap one cards (been with them over 6 years) and they can't seem to help me... So if they can't help me after being such a loyal customer i'll take my "business" elsewhere....

I'm looking for a good starter card with Amex (preferably no annual fee) my credit score with experian is 760. Mainly looking to use for shopping, gas, food, etc.

AmEx Bear recommends Blue Cash Everyday. You get: 3% back on grocery stores, 2% back on gas & select department stores and 1% everywhere else.

You should be golden to get rid of Crap I mean Cap One. I can't argue with the Amex Bear, but you may also want to consider a charge card with Amex too. It just depends on your needs and desires. I think you should be fine based on your score and history.

Got into the Amex fam (no problem) they started me with a 3k limit, which is cute. Just want to thank everyone for the help and advice, and while i'm here "F" cap one.
