Upgraded Green To Premier Rewards Gold

Postby ksy » Wed Jul 03, 2013 12:38 pm

June 29 2012 I became an American Express Member with the Green Card. I called June 30th 2013 to upgrade to PRG and it took 3 seconds! PRG cards in the mail.... They bragged on my history and asked if there was anything they could do better. What a great company.....
Love these AMEX guys.

:money: :cool: :money:

Congrats!!! i heard that the PRG is a very good card to make points especially for gas and travel. Plus I was a bit nervous but the upgrading process when I upgraded to Platinum but it was so easy. All she did was read me my terms and conditions and *poof* it was completed.

They been cool every time I've called. Should the card not meet your needs you can always downgrade as well. I've heard mixed things about this card lately.

This is true. Back in Feb I got the Delta Gold... PC same month to the BCE and applied on Friday for the PRG and got approved after I called to verify my address. Card came today. Fast Service. Weird thing is that they will not raise my CL on my BCE but gave me a PRG and the checking for approval link on their site said i can go as high as 4000 a month in spending. Very interesting but still think the gold will be primary card as I am not going to carry limits on my cards anymore and if I need to Chase Freedom is always in my wallet!
