Approved for an Amex!

Postby augiedog » Thu May 22, 2014 8:33 pm

Wow! Today I received an offer in the mail with a $250 signup bonus for the Blue Cash Everyday. I've been waiting for a good offer from Amex for a while, and this is the best I had ever received from them. 15 months 0% and then 12.99% afterwards; I can't believe I got such a great offer. So I am officially a cardmember now! Hope my limit is better than Discover.

That's amazing! I go to college and work part-time so I didn't put a very large income, but I did put that I had a lot more in savings. Hopefully that will help me.. I got offers for the Green card and Blue Sky before but I never applied as don't like fees and I don't travel much.

Thank you! Do they do a hard pull in in 61 days?
I just logged into my profile on their website and I am very pleased with my current limit: $5900! Sure beats five of my Visas that have $500-$700 each.

Make sure you look at total cost/benefit and not just the AF's on any card you're considering. One's spend can make a difference. The rewards earn rate on the BCE is rarely the best option for the associated spend categories.

Yeah... maybe if I had a bigger signup bonus! I buy gas with cash since it's always cheaper that way (except when Discover offers 5% back, which brings the price down a few cents). The grocery store rewards I will be using a little, but I do a majority of my shopping at Target where I use my 5% off Target Card.
