Appbar is a baller now!

 

I haven't app'd for a new card since the Jan '12 BCP.

 

There's no Costco around so having their Amex wouldn't really make sense.

Re: Costco ALMOST got me to bite today......

Isn't the CSP metal?!

 

I don't have need to call very often so it's hard to say if doing a PC (and $95!) is worth getting a live person.

 

I do hope they eventually upgrade my Freedom to Signature but they're not getting a HP, LOL!

Re: Costco ALMOST got me to bite today......

I got my partner to get this as his first Amex.... THEN BLUE PLUS PREFERRED Came out and I have been eating my feet since!  He has $330 coming soon which is very good BUT.  The only ups of the Costco Amex can be exceeded with other cards easy... I guess the advantage is no A/F but not sure why that's really an up.  3% Gas but everyone offers that these days.  I wouldn't get it again... blue blue blue all the way! Hoping next month I can finally push him over the edge to get the blue!

This card has been tempting me for a while now. A few times they have set up a tent at Costco trying to get people to apply. I have resisted thus far, you are not alone ls2982! :smileyhappy:
