Thanks guys! Had to call the Amex executive office and deal with them a bit before they pushed me through. Last on my list is the Amex Business GOLD card.. Should I apply now or get some use on the plum then apply?


If you had to go the EO route it woukld be best to use the new card for 6-12 months before going for another 

They will want to see your history IMHO

Re: FIRST EVER AMEX - Delta Gold - Have questions

Spent 140K on the Amex Plum since October 10th (when I got the card). Just applied for the BusinessGold and got accepted!.. now I have Delta Skymiles personal, Biz Plum, and Biz gold. Last on my list is the Platinum to one day get concierge benefits etc... I also like the SPG because I stay at a lot of Starwood properties when I do travel.

 

I came a long way from 507 Credit score last year, now I have a 694 and 3 Amex!! :smileyhappy:

 

 


Starting Score: 506

just curious why have Plum and Biz gold? why not just get the platinum if that's what you want.

Re: FIRST EVER AMEX - Delta Gold - Have questions

If you can support the fee for platinum, which if you travel is easy to do, between the lounge access, global entry reimbursement as well as annual airfare credit, just call amex and see if they will upgrade you from the biz gold to platinum. ....

 

there are also offers in the mail for up to $100k membership reward points with $10k spend, so keep an eye out on that.
