Re: Credit card for traveling with work

If you're really interested in getting an Amex, I would suggest applying for the Gold Skymiles, considered the easiest Amex to get. Then after a few months, Amex will have good reasons to approve your application for the Gold card.

Re: Credit card for traveling with work

Not sure if I want to risk the hit and for a denied card. Might look into a common high CL card for a low card score

Amex PRG. Very good travel rewards for booking through amex. More lenient underwriting criteria since its a charge card. Internal limits can go sky high on charge cards. Discover card. 5% cash back though shopsiscover for hotels.com and expedia.

Chase sapphire preferred is for excellent credit. Not sure if you could do this one.

There are a couple of questions you need to ask your self before you apply

- How long will it take your company to reimburse you?

- How much money will you put on the card?

- Can your income cover the expenses if your company doesnt reimburse you in time?

 

 

These questions will determine if you should get a credit card or charge card

 

Just my 2 cents!

the chase freedom card is the one card I want the most but I know my credit is no where near the level to be accepted yet.  i am working with AMEX on a declined application.  The application has been in, "In Progress" for about a week now so I am hoping for a charge card.

Barclays is something I would consider but I have a lot of recent inquires and my AAOA took a hit because of 2 new accounts.

I would be pushing at least 3k a month through the card and the company reimburses me once a month on the expenses.  I can cover it myself no problem since I have a buffer setup for just a thing in case there are delays.
