I had the same one for FIVE years from Dillard's ( black with a few slots and money clip) and just recently bought a coach one similarly styled but with just like two spots for cred cards... It was .... Only $30!!!! Score! Got it at Allen Premium Outlets in Texas :-D
I'll make it my sole card of use, then dependent on the cli, go from there as it is a lower limit card that I have. I might use it for my rental car this weekend! Hahaha!
funny i just ordered a new wallet because my current wallet bends my cards. i really dont need room for my debit cards because i never use them but my new wallet has more then enough card slots. it took me awhile to find the wallet i wanted too. i thought it was kinda weird that i was putting so much thought into what wallet would be best because usually i just pick any bifold i come across when my other wallet rips

Really just use the card. If you usually use other cards, maybe put some of the spending you do on the others onto the BCE for a couple of months. I usually charged everything, but instead of using the charge card, I just used the BCE and put about 1.5k on it this month which is my normal spending I did on my Zync or PRG.
+1. Use the card, pay it off, repeat. Do not revolve a balance. Amex is still a charge company at heart and will never penalize younfor pif.
i agree with him. and why would they want you to carry a balance in the 0% intro period. PIF unless you really cant for some reason

Yeah I'll prob just pif. And I'll only use it any nicer places (wine bars or neiman's) so they don't try to aa me based on that type of usage. Remember hearing in 08 that they were aa'ing ppl based on WHERE they were using their cards?!? Eeekk!!
LMAO that is BS! I use my Amex cards anywhere and everywhere Amex is accepted. McD's - Check. Beer store - Check. Parking meters - Check. Some crazy boardwalk store - Check. You take Amex, I'm swiping it.
Amex could really care less where you use it. They are making $$$ either way. As long as you are spending (and paying) Amex is happy!
