Amex Delta/ Venture One

I am a very happy camper right now!
After paying $5 in taxes on a $674 NYC flight, I got my $50 statement credit within like a week! Posted yesterday. So I got a $674 ticket for -$45 LOL
I used it to upgrade to economy comfort! Amex is FAST with posting rewards lately! I even noticed that on my BCE they are starting to post cash back as I make the purchases! Awesome! I'm loving Amex!!

I also got my Venture One, resulting from a Visa Plat upgrade from C1.
Venture One is a GORGEOUS CARD! Can't believe it's C1!! It's like metallic and gold!
And it's a Signature! Now it I could just get the limit to $10k+

Thanks everyone for all the info I've learned here! Wouldn't be in this position without y'all! :-)

Re: Amex Delta/ Venture One

I think the Venture One is a hideous card, especially how both sides are gold and blinding-shiny.

Congrats though.! Im still working on up to get a Delta Amex.

Thanks myjourney! :-)

Ahh, I guess I'm a sucker for shiny stuff. It looks better than that Blue AF version. Fyi, the Venture One and Amex Gold are both similarly colored lol!

Oh no they aren't! The CapOne is literally way too shiny. The Amex has a bit of a matte finish over the glossiness. :smileyhappy:

Re: Amex Delta/ Venture One

Yeah lol I'm done apping. I have 4-5 inqs falling off in August alone!! Then I'll be down to < 5 inqs in two years on every report! I will be forced to find a good BT card come November when my 0% expires on Freedom, but til then no apps. Im going to be aggressively paying off balances til then. Once I get my commission from work, I can comfortable pay $3-4k towards my $15k+ cc debt, even if it is at a weighted avg 3% apr. lol

One other note:
Amex has been FLOODING my email w card offers!
I've gotten an offer for PRG, Gold, Blue Sky, BCP, and this morning I got an offer for a Green with $0 intro AF. I wish I had BCP as I spend more on groceries than I thought. Lol I'm a health nut!

Pay off that debt and then take your pick of the Amex offers because they will still be there and that's great news about the INQ's
