AmEx Gold Delta APPROVED

I'm new to this board and pretty new to credit in general, but I was just approved yesterday for $2k with the AmEx Gold Delta. Now I guess it's time to be patient and wait for the card Smiley Sad

Re: AmEx Gold Delta APPROVED

Thanks everyone! No problem, scores are mid 700's with about 10% total utilization. I have an auto loan through a local bank, the Discover More card, a Sterling (Kay) card with a $0 balance, and student loans totalling around $6k that are in good standing. My AAoA is a bit low at around 2 years. The Kay account was my first "credit" account and I'm glad I opened it. They gave me a line of $3k, which I believe Discover saw and matched when I applied for that card. I bought a $500 ring with the 0%/12 month promotion. I have about 2 HPs within the past 12 months. I'm pretty excited about cracking the AmEx shell!

Re: AmEx Gold Delta APPROVED

They started me at $2K as well, which kinda ticked me off considering my salary and other CL's.  In 61 days I went to $6K, six months later it was $18K and the beginning of this month went to $25K.  Use it, pay in full, and they will grow with you.

 

Welcome to the AMEX family!

Re: AmEx Gold Delta APPROVED

It looks like I got the same offer as BMD0224!

And thanks, DrJim! I anticipate requesting a CLI after 61 days and growing with them. This seems to be a great starting card to get into AmEx!
