I got the Amex Zync (NPSL) in June 2012. I have been putting around $2000.00 a month thru the card. When I received the letter I'm the mail about discontinuing the Pack I knew I wanted to get the Gold card however I was not sure if I was going to be approved. Last night I pulled the trigger over the phone with Amex was told my application was not instantly approved and to give it a few hours but they don't see why I would not receive the card since I was already in the Amex family.
Later on in the night I checked the applications status website it said processing. This morning I call the number on the website get a rep he says " oh your already a card member, your approved your card will be there in 2 days ".
Now I have the Zync and the Premier Rewards Gold Card !
Congrats on having the "Unicorn" as well as getting the PRG Card! That's a formidable combination !
I would like that card but I am not sure I can justify it. The fee is just so high! I think thats why I am going to get the mercedes benz amex instead. Its almost as good for a lower fee.
Congrats! That is awesome. I aspire to an Amex card one day. That would be the pinnacle of my rebuilding experience if I could get a green card and get backdated to 1991 when I had a green card in a former credit life...
