I have never had an American Express card ever!! So today, I app'd online for the Blue Cash Everyday. I was somewhat nervous since I've read many stories of credit worthy people not getting a foot in Amex. I did the online app and immediately I received the pending futher review screen. I was disappointed, but I read on here that you could check the application status online, so i did and this is what I saw
Status of Application

I was so excited, I couldn't believe it!
I called the customer service number to find out what my limit was and it's $9500K....(seriously). I am doing the happy dance!!!
This is the largest CL I've ever had in my life!!! Currently my Citi Diamond has a limit of $6300.
No more cards for me...in the garden I go......

Good For You . . . same feeling, keep mov'n forward.
@ youngandcreditwrthy. So they approved you with a freeze on your credit reports? I just read a previous tread that you was approved for another card with the freeze on your reports.
Congrats! That''s a nice CL. Don't forget to request a CLI in 61 days.
$9500!! OMG, I can't even imagine. That's awesome, congrats to you!
I've learned so much from this board..now it's time to say good bye to my orchard card. I must say it was a great card when I started rebuilding and my CL has grown through the years. If it didn't have an AF which I pay monthly I would probably keep it, but since it does...to the chopping block it must go!!
Congrats and great starting limit! I plan on applying in February!
