Re: A.E. Visa Upgrade Offer!!!!

because this is not an offer anyone should be taking...this is a marketing ploy for AE to get a kickback for enrolling you into a visa card.  this is not good for the consumer this is good for AE.  there are better cards out there this person could qualify for i am sure.  they aren't "upgrading".  they are saying ok you can allow us to turn your store credit into a useless credit card that we get a kickback on.  too many people see these kinds of things and think they earned something or they are being given something great when its absolute crap.

 

go get a real credit card OP that gives you real rewards.  if you are being target for this offer you likely have decent enough credit to get a freedom card or a capital one cash back card or even a discover IT card.  this AE card is honestly a POS.

Thanks for your comments. I took the card because I want something different and it has no AF. I already have other cash back cards.  I'm not going to use it more than usual.  I treat that card as store card instead of Visa just like my Old Navy Visa and PayPal MC. I also got upgraded a couple of years ago.

Re: A.E. Visa Upgrade Offer!!!!

Like gpfirestone mentioned there are way better rewards cards out there but you have to give the OP props because by him getting the upgrade it shows that his credit is improving and moving upward. Sure the rewards might suck but who cares cause this card has the potential to grow (backed by GE correct me if im wrong). Plus it's not costing him a hp for upgrading so why not do it. Ge cards tend to grow quickly hence why i want to apply for one. Nonetheless congrats op! Keep doing an excellent job in your credit journey!
Oh btw hows the paypal mc working for you? Is it growing like the rest of your ge cards? Im itching to apply for this one since im an ebay junkie lol.

Re: A.E. Visa Upgrade Offer!!!!

Thanks for your comments.  PayPal MC is a good card to have if you buy a lot of stuff from ebay or online merchants accepting Paypal.  The card doesn't give you any cash back.  I never use it any other places outside of ebay.
