Fidelity Amex ????

Re: Fidelity Amex ????

I could just do a cash management account. Mostimportantly to me is if I can use AX. I will have to look into it. I don't want another card I don't use.




I could change this worthless card to a Quicksilver I guess. But only if no AF. I've had it 6 months, just got a CLI increase this month from $300 to $500. How generous of them huh?

Re: Fidelity Amex ????

Its a great card, except that being on the Amex network is probably its biggest limitation. Not as many merchants accept Amex, so that can be a problem sometimes.

The 2nd biggest problem is probably how ugly that card looks.

Other than that its a great card.

Re: Fidelity Amex ????

This card has been good to me.


Small background.

 

My previous two employers had their 401K accounts managed by Fidelity.  I had a modest account ~20K.  

 

 

Initialy approval at 5K.  Took a HP CLI six months later to 10K.  Customer service is very helpful and polite when I've had to call and the rewards are easily quantifyable 2% on everything.  I've tried to give me Priceline card a bit more love as of late in hopes that it would grow but Barclay doesn't want to Auto CLI me.... thats another story.


I am personally a fan and whenever I get on an app spree again I will likely add the Viss Signature card they have as well.  I am a big fan of Fidelity to be honest (I understand its underwritten by FIA).

 

If you feel like burning another HP I am a fan of this card despite the bright green color... anyone who knows their stuff would realize the benefit... if not who cares what they think Smiley Happy

Re: Fidelity Amex ????

You should be good for approval and could move the small cl of current over while at it and close it.

Re: Fidelity Amex ????

It is pretty good card ... As another person mentioned it is valuable at costo. Also makes like easier not having to think about what card to use where. I put all my spend on it till recently got a chase ink bold. Opening a CMA is easy with fidelity and are very lax with CLs. My max credit line is around 13k on one card ... Whimsically put 20k on the app request and they approved. But if u have quick silver 1.5% I don't think a hard pull is worth the extra 0.5% Customer serv is pretty good except for the BT/ check thing they keep pushing Smiley Happy

Re: Fidelity Amex ????

As far as I know, it's the only no annual fee 2% cashback card, which makes it best in class.  As to having a Fidelity account, just open up a CMA.  The account has no fee; no deposit requirement; free unlimited ATM fee rebates; and, free checks.

 

For most, infinitely superior to any bank account, in my view.
