AMEX Blue Cash Preferred Approved!

Contributor

AMEX Blue Cash Preferred Approved!

Applied online yesterday via CK website link.  They pulled EX, my score is approx 678 (PSECU Fico).  I was approved for 4.5K, so I'm very happy with that starting CL.

 

I'm looking to cut my families costs with some rewards dollars this year:

 

1)AMEX Blue Preferred: 6% on groceries, 3% on gas

2)Discover More: ShopDiscover for online purchases and to use reward dollars on Amazon.com, 5% on various categories

3)Chase Freedom: 5% on various categories

 

I'm not trying to spend more this year, hopefully I can spend less but why not spend as efficiently as possible!

Re: AMEX Blue Cash Preferred Approved!

Congratulations. There seem to be a lot of nice approvals from Amex recently across their revolver and charge products.

 

I am eyeing a Blue Sky or Blue Cash Preferred...

And if your annual groceries are going to be under 6K, you can buy gift cards for other places at large supermarkets, effectively getting 6% off spending at those places.   When the card was uncapped, this was really useful!  (And is probably the major reason the card was capped....)

Re: AMEX Blue Cash Preferred Approved!

Thanks everyone!!!  It wasn't that long ago I wasn't sure if I would get approved for a Cap1 secured card.

 

A little direction, motivation, and persistence can go a long way!
