Re: Amex BCE offer $250 cash back after $1K spend

Worth it 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Amex BCE offer $250 cash back after $1K spend

Mines was only for 100 bucks cash back bonus. Can i have them match this as I am still a new cardholder (2/2014)?

 

I did the same with my Freedom and they matched it no problem.

     Just curious tac111 or anyone else who got this offer, are you an Amex member already ? I got the same offer about a month ago, have had Zync for around 3 years- applied and got instant approval.

That's a nice deal. I'd take it in a heartbeat.

Amex will not do this. You can try, but it will fail. Smiley Sad Sorry.

Re: Amex BCE offer $250 cash back after $1K spend

Thanks for all the great advice.  I haven't applied yet - but plan on it in the next few weeks (probably sooner).   I have never had an AMEX card and wasn't sure if I even wanted one.  I've been overloaded with offers from them for quite a few different cards - but have never applied. 

 

I will say that this particular card with the $250 cash back really got my attention.   I promise to update with results after I apply.

 

Thanks again to all for sharing your knowledge!

Well - here's the update I promised:

 

I applied on Sunday afternoon and was instantly approved.  As most of you probably know - AMEX does not provide the credit limit in the approval email.   I called a few different times yesterday - and the rep(s) couldn't even find my application.  I explained that I already received an email regarding approval - and even provided the last five digits of the account number that was included in the email.   No such luck -  lesson learned - DON'T APPLY FOR AMEX ON A SUNDAY - especially if your new to AMEX.

 

Anyway - I called this morning and was pleasantly surprised by a $15,000 credit limit.   I'll probably never go for an increase - it's actually more than I'll ever need. LOL - but is was VERY exciting to get such a high limit on my very first AMEX card.

 

Thanks again for all your help and advice!!!

Wow...really tempting. Really hope that the Everyday eventually has a limited offer like this too. I guess they are relying on the novelty hype at the moment.
