I've been eyeing the Blue, thinking long term here.
I'm a grad student looking into getting an Amex card in the next year. It will be the last major card to get, and the last credit card in general for a few years so that I can establish credit and work on CLI on what I have vs more cards. I would hope that Amex would have the highest CL on all my cards.
I'm in the 660s so I won't even apply until I hit 700+.I have about 36% total utilization that should be paid off in full within the next month or two. Then plan to only use 10% total utilization, hopefully raising my credit score steadily. This is what I have to work with until graduation and residency, so obviously my income isn't up there but I want to start now so that when I do start working, I have the credit history with CLI on my major cards reflective on my score/income.
US Bank Visa Platinum Flexperks Travel Rewards 3K
Cap One Mastercard Platinum 2K
Cap 1 Journey $500 (use for gum kinda card once a month, then put away :rolleyes
Chase Freedom $500 (plan to have this increased before applying for an Amex)
My fav: Discover IT $1400 (wait before asking for an increase in the next 6 months).
Thanks for the input!
