Had a Visa for 20 years, now I got the BCE

Postby Joe » Wed Feb 06, 2013 7:32 pm

All I have had for 20 years is a Visa card with a $4000 limit. Never asked for an increase.

I had been interested in AE recently because of the extended warranty and buyer protection benefits. I have had AE offers in the past, but it was for cards with annual fees which I did not want.

Last month I got an offer for the BC Eveyday Cash with the following -

1. 150 Reward Dollars after spending $500 in first 3 months (normally 100 w/$1000)

2. 0% introductory APR for 15 months (normally for 12 months)

I did some research and found out this was a good card to get. I applied online and was approived instantly.

I received the card and it has a $7600 limit. In researching I found this website and the stuff about asking for a 3X increase after 60 days so I will give that a try.

Of course I now use this card in place of my Visa wherever I can.

Thanks guys.

I was happy to get the card just to be able to have the extended warranty and buyer protection. I was even more delighted to see that they gave me a better deal than their normal offering.
