Re: Can I say now I have Amex on my portfolio?

You can say that you have a card which uses the American Express payment network. But you do not have an account issued by American Express Bank. Two very different things.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $32,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $14,600, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Thank You Premier (6/15) $6,800

+1. Sorry op but it is not issued by Amex, it just uses the Amex network to process transactions.

Bad news, no you can't say you have an Amex.  Good news, PenFed is much harder to get than an Amex.  I have a BCP and I guarantee Penfed wouldn't touch me.  Charge cards are even easier.  Lets not even talk about the now defunct Zync cards.  Amex is not a status symbol anymore. (unless you talk Centurion and that's a questionable decision in and of itself, ahem Paladium with better benefits for lower fees)
