My Very First AMEX Card!!

My Very First AMEX Card!!

Good Morning everyone!!

 

Today I woke up with a very bad itch for an AMEX card, and decided to go for it.

 

I just applied for the Amex Green and was instantly approved with NPSL.

 

I'm so stoked since this is my first Amex card ever!

 

I applied for the Zync twice and always got declined last year.

 

I'm completely done apping for a very long time. I'm going to let my new 3 cards age. (Chase Slate, BoA Travel Rewards, Amex Green - applied this month.)

 

I can not thank everyone for all your support and advice and I hope everyone has a nice day.

Re: My Very First AMEX Card!!

Congrats and welcome to the Amex family. Treat Amex well and they will return the favor. The first month or so is a headache though. Amex declined me twice between they suspected fraud. Once Amex gets to know your spending pattern, they won't hassle you about approving a charge (unless you are going to charge a huge amount...But just call and it should be fine).

 

Again, congrats and hope you receive your card soon!

Thanks everyone. Smiley Happy

 

I'm still in shock since i thought i had little chance to become part of the Amex family.

 

I'm going to garden for a very long time now. I have enough credit and I'm going to be an even more responsible user.

 

This forum is awesome btw. Smiley Very Happy
