Got my Amex BCE today, it's beautiful.

:smileyvery-happy: It's beautiful, man it's going to get scratch on the first swipe.

 

Anyway, I know there are many posts about 3x 61 days cli. For those that got it. Are you guys maxing it out at all or half the limit per month?

 

CL is 2k, so my future 3x would be 6k, counting the days.

2013 Approvals: Discover IT - 3/1, Amex BCE - 3/4, CSP - 5/4, Barclay Ring - 6/12, BoA Privileges Cash - 6/27, Citi TY Preferred - 8/6, OCCU Duck - 11/4, USBank (Cash+) - 11/22, Wells Fargo - 12/21, Nordstrom - 12/29

Armbend, did you already have a relationship established with AmEx? I'm thinking of applying for the BCE as well

Yes, I got the Amex Green on Oct'12, so my BCE will be backdating to 03/2012 giving it 1 year, and is OLDER than my Amex Green lol.

Re: Got my Amex BCE today, it's beautiful.

CONGRATS!!!

 

this card is a beauty! I love mine; it has great rewards too!!

 

I only used 20% of my limit and pif each month.

And yes,

it does scratch very easily :-( I ordered a replacement card within the first month because a silly guy at the tanning salon scratched the heck out of it ! gr

Re: Got my Amex BCE today, it's beautiful.

How does backdating work with AmEx? I want to apply for the BCE but I have 1y5m credit history and a score of 722, I'm thinking that I need to apply for a lesser card.

Could you post a picture? I have one, but it didn't look exactly like the one on their website and I just want to be sure I didn't get one with a printing error.

Unfortunately we are not allowed anymore to post pics of our CC's due to the hazard of numbers possibly being exposed.
