So, I christened my Amex Zync this afternoon... and I LOVED the reaction I got! :smileyvery-happy: The girl looked at the card and went, "Oooh... I've never seen one of these. Is it better than a Platinum?" LOVE it!!!! :smileyvery-happy: :smileyvery-happy: :smileyvery-happy:

 

Of course, I'm honest, so I told her the truth. But still... her reaction to the card was GREAT!!! :smileyvery-happy:


Hahaha! Isn't the best thing ever?! I remember being asked that at 'My Closet Italia' on Melrose and I feel bad but I totally went with the flow, and the worse part is I said, "It's just like the 'Black Card', it's just as exclusive." :smileyvery-happy:

 

I know, I'm such a horrible person. :smileytongue:

Love it! Maybe some day I'll learn to just smile and go with it. I mean, just because the AF is lower doesn't mean it's "less than," does it?! :smileyvery-happy:

Exactly! :smileyvery-happy: I love the Zync card, I can't remember the last time I used a card besides it.

I've said this before in similar threads -

 

I've been swiping cards for over 2 years and never seen a Zync. I look forward to that day

I'm jealous, I haven't had any kind of comments about the card yet. :smileywink:

But I did get a $10 statement credit for using it at Red Robin. Of course, that was through some Foursquare-linked offer for Amex.

Re: Amex Zync tops Platinum!!!

I'm so glad I started building credit as soon as I turned 18...all my friends and co-workers are like "whoa, you have an American Express?!" And I'm like, "Yuuuup." Then they all feel jealous, because nobody my age has really any credit at all. :smileywink:

Perhaps the Zync cards are the rarest of all :smileyvery-happy: I don't know.... Amex just decreased the annual fee to 15$ from 25$. A month after I get the card. Oh well it's only $10 ...

That's interesting. Their website still says $25. Maybe they're giving you a special price. Is this for your 2nd year w/Zync? They waive it for the first year. Still at $25, it's a bargain for what the backdating is going to do for my score! :smileytongue:

You're also lucky to be learning all of this at your age. When I was in my 20s, I knew NOTHING about credit and made a lot of mistakes. I so wish I had known then even half of what I do now about credit, and I've learned most of it from this forum! :smileyhappy:
