AMEX Special Offers

Logged into my AMEX account (I'm an additional card holder through wife's Blue card) and clicked on View Your Special Offers out of curiousity and under Current Offers it shows:  Premier Rewards Gold, Gold Delta Skymiles, and Blue Cash Preferred.  Are these solid offers based on my credit?  Wasn't looking to app yet but was surprised to see these offers.  Are these pretty good cards?

Re: AMEX Special Offers

Where do you see "view your special offers"? Whenever I am logged into my amex account I never see that tab.

 

Thanks!

I would consider those cards to be "pretty good".

Re: AMEX Special Offers

Sorry for the misinformation in my original post. Before logging into my account I clicked on Tab to view all cards and then clicked view your special offers. On next screen where it asks you to enter your info, I clicked on the already a member login button. But after doing that, I do not see any offers, it takes me back to the cards screen.

If you weren't logged it, it won't be off your credit.

Re: AMEX Special Offers

Once you are a cardmember can you no longer see pre-approved offers?

It seems to behave very oddly once you are a cardmember.  If you click on view all cards, there will be a tab in the far right that says Preapproved Offers or something like that.  Most of the time, it says Refer Friends and Earn Rewards.  If you see the refer friends tab, you have no preapproved offers.  Even when it shows up, if you were to leave the site and come right back, the offers are likely gone.  At least that is my experience.  I wouldn't pay too much attention to it.

Re: AMEX Special Offers

I just got the green in february and I only have two open credit cards right now so I am not planning on applying for anything too soon. Maybe in six months I'll open up a revolver like Chase freedom or Discover more.
