I was thinking I would apply for Chase Freedom then, but now throwing Amex into the mix with Gold, it really would make more overall sense for the BCP as I would be maximizing rewards that way.
So that's kind of what I'm thinking. I don't want to do anything to spook any of these guys at this point, but down the road now I am thinking that might be the card that works the best for me if I add anything to the mix.
The only thing I know for a fact is right now the only lenders I would be interested in applying for anything new with would be Chase or Amex. Associated frankly doesn't have anything I know of that I don't already have, and Elan isn't my first choice anyway, and I may be max'd out with what BofA will give me right now anyway. I'd like to establish things with both Chase and Amex. If that process goes well, I could see giving them both a lot of my business. I plan to now anyway, but I mean more in the future.
And I'm very happy with FNBO so I really want to keep them in the mix too. I have nothing bad to say about FIA or BofA, as well. (though some of you may).
And I might add, the backdating to 99 would be awesome as well.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Definitely go for the Freedom and the BCP, they're a great 1-2 punch, but stay "in the garden" for at least 6 months before you apply for either of them.
Amex Gold and CSP? Glad to see you finally got some decent credit cards.
