Re: Charge card

dont store cards report as charge? My macys cards says charge account or something like that. As for amex the cards are similar, personally i would go for gold since i think there is a 10-25k bonus depending what offer you have and no fee first year(can convert to green later if you want)

Re: Charge card

Store cards say charge on the reports, but they are treated as revolving, which they are.

It's a confusing hold-over in terminology from back in the day, when store cards were payable monthly.
