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
BLUE CASH EVERYDAY(SM)
Congratulations! Your application has been approved and you should receive your new card within 7-10 days.
If you requested a balance transfer to this card, click here to view the status of that transfer
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......

@ 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.

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!!
