Got my first Amex in the mail today!

Got home today and had three envelopes from AmEx!  One with the acceptance letter, another with the terms and rewards/benefits info, and the last had om my home pack rewards info with Lowes gift card.  I've gotta say that the Zync itself looks great.  Don't know why, but I'm really excited to have an AmEx charge card in my wallet.  Looking forward to using it without worrying about credit limits or % utilization.

 

Still wondering if I should have gone for the PR Gold, but with the roughly $12k I charge per year, it would have been hard to make it financially beneficial to have the gold, even with the full Membership Rewards.  But I think I'll be really happy with the Zync for now.

Thanks everyone!  I know my Citi Dividends World Mastercard is probably a harder card to get just because of the "World" designation, but having a NPSL AmEx is a great feeling!
