I just got the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Card. From what I can tell its still far more superior than this card? I'm new to AMEX and I'll be getting my shiny new card tomorrow!

Did I make a mistake?

From your knowledge, should I reduce my credit limit with Amex to improve my chance to be approved for this card? I have 26,200 on my Blue Sky (since I just did a random 3X CLI a couple months ago). This alone outweighs all my other cards, so I wonder if I have met the internal limit from Amex yet. I'm willing to give more personal information via message if you would request. Thanks!

I posted it before but I thought you didn't see it. Can't contact you through PM so I re-post it. Could you answer me this one? Thanks.


Because this is handled by New Accounts, I really don't have all of the information they advise. I would just leave your account as is. If a good candidate, they'll give you at least $500-$1,000, and then you could do a credit line reallocation.

Yes, Blue Cash Everyday is expected to be eligible for a product change, as well as other Blue products.

No, a product change will not qualify you for a welcome offer. That is for new applications only.

It's a different type of card, you are comparing apples to oranges.


And I just have to ask because inquiring minds want to know - if you aren't sure what the right move was why would you go ahead and make it THEN ask if you did the right thing after the fact?


There is no right or wrong answer, as both cards have their uses and can be useful in your wallet. But I'm just curious how people's minds work that they go do things THEN ask gee what do you think I should do after they did it. Is it because they want to hear others say what they want to hear (yeah you did the right thing here's a pat on the back for ya) or some other thing? I'll never "get" that I guess. I mean once it's done it's done so it really doesn't matter what we think does it?

Like that time, about ten years ago, when I slept with a random girl from the club and didn't use protection. I'm worried about STDs. Did I do the wrong thing?

In other words if I were to apply for the card rather then PC I would be eligible for the bonus points?

Anyone know what the credit score minimum is on this card? I have brother who is getting his first credit card and asked me the other day which one I'd get if I were him. I suggested looking at the EveryDay, thinking it took the place of the Zync and joined the Blue series as the "entry level" AMEX card.
Credit Cards:
Visa - barclaycardUS White, Nordstrom, 1st Financial Bank
AMEX - PR Gold Card, Delta Reserve Business, Blue Sky, Gold Delta
