Thanks for your help everyone!
I'm not too concerned with the AF's for any of the cards. I make a good amount of money (80k) but I just want the best rewards for what I'm paying for. I want to travel more, which is why I would like a larger limit on my cards. I never really used credit cards much, hence my credit limits, so I'm slightly new to the credit card world.
What do you mean by AMX's backdating? I've never heard of that.
I do like the rewards for mainly travel... not so much cash back. Charge cards are also ok because I typically pay my balances in full anyway. Both of the credit cards I have now are payed off. I usually never carry limits... so my utilization is zero.
The reason I didn't want to go the Freedom route is because you can't turn those points into flyer miles. I don't mind Delta Airlines, but I usually fly Virgin America.
I guess my concern is that I can get the best card that I would be approved for right now with my stats. Sounds like AMX might be my best shot?
Do any of you have a AMX? I hear that it's hard to find places that accept them. Is this true?
And if I have to have a balance of $5,000 maybe any one of the AMX's are better for me. The two cards that I have now are unsecured Capital One's but they don't have the greatest benefits.
Thanks again you guys!
