America Express and creditcards.com card match... WHAT?

Okay so I just got thrown for a lupe and after basically trashing creditcard.com yesterday I am shocked and maybe putting tail between my legs if valid....

 

So American Express Blue Cash Preferred if I go online even logged in under my partners current card it is showing he can apply and it's 0% for 6 months on "Purchases" only and a range of 12.99% to 21.99% for APR after that.

 

Did the Cardmatch and got an offer for Amex Blue Cash Preferred with 0% for 15 months and a 12.99 after that!!

 

SAY WHAT?

You'll get different promotion occasionally with different sites. For instance with cardmatch you will get $250 reward dollars instead of the usual $150 after spending $1000 in first 90days. The 0% for 15 months its a promotion that could be site/refferal specific. the 12.99% will vary depending on your creditwordiness, and they probably just put the value it starts from so the low end.

What I forgot about it is it's a little like Capital One... You have to make sure you are reading the difference between "You are approved" (Basically, not actual words) vs. "We have these great offers for you" type thing... people and me get confused sometimes on that.

 

he had 15 offers or something but only 4 said these are exclusive offers from the bank because of your credit type wording and all 4 were Amex, Gold Charge, Delta Gold, Regular Daily Blue and the Preferred Blue which is AWESOME but unfortunetly not what we are really shopping for right now as a 0% card (maybe I should word it) I don't want to start that relationship with amex to see lots of charges not paid in full and also probably reason 1 is I "think" I'm blacklisted and all though Amex seemed to do away with that for a while for adding AU, I think it's back, can anyone confirm if they are blacklisted for getting amex themselves but in the last year was able to be added to a "NEW ACCOUNT AS AU" ???

Not to mention the sign-up bonus is $250 after $1000 spend in 3 months. :smileyhappy: I app'ed for it 2 weeks ago and got my highest credit limit. :smileyvery-happy: I just checked my terms and it says:

 

APR for Purchases: 0.00% introductory APR through your billing period that ends in June, 2014. After that, your APR will be 12.99%. This APR will vary with the market based on the Prime Rate.

Amex BCP ($12,100) - US Bank Cash+ ($11,000) - BofA Travel Rewards ($10,000) - Citi Forward ($5,500)

Last HP: 6/11/13 (for BofA CLI)

Normally I would agree with a lot of this but not this time... I have gone into his account through amex and clicked to get another card and get his offers and it gives the 6 months 0% and the range of APR.

The creditmatch offer I go into and the details are the 15 months 0% and no range on APR, says it is 12.99%

didn't notice the cash bonus part.

I got that and the Delta card, but then again, all it takes is positive history to get an American Express card, so I don't know.
