Amex Basic Card

I stumbled upon this. I found it curious that I've not heard of this anywhere on these forums in my time here. I could just be blind.

Could it be a foreign CC only? Has "Ireland" in the URL.

Oh, I didn't even notice the ireland aspect. I did find it curious on the application itself, it's not a typical website application that I'm used to.

Re: Amex Basic Card

Looks interesting too bad its for Ireland or at least UK only. I like the idea of a no AF charge card, but when I do the math my usage of pattern for Zync easily pays for its low AF anyway. 

 

 

Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Amtrak 4.6k, & Freedom 3.3k & Slate 3.3k, FNBO DISC 14.9k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & AMEX Hilton Surpass 7.5k & AMEX Zync NPSL, Sams Club Discover 10k, Paypal Extras MC 6k, CapOne 2.5k, CapOne 750, Amazon 3.9k, Walmart 4.5k, Citi Simplicity 7k, HHonors Gold 1k (moved 5k CL to Simplicity), Discover IT 6.5k and a nice stack of store cards.
Last APP 4/26//2014 no plans for new credit I think I have enough.
