How many Amex's can one person have??!

Very excited about the BCE I recently acquired. I really am making them my only everyday card (sorry Chase Freedom)!

I want to know though ...or does anyone know, rather, how many Amex's can one person have?!? I might want to get one that's more useful for traveling in the future (i.e Delta Gold or HHonors).

:-) any insight would be helpful...

Re: How many Amex's can one person have??!

Well... I just checked and the HHonors one that I want has no AF... Obviously, I'm in the garden lol... But as a creditor, I was jw how the treat multiple accounts with them.

I do know one thing:
I have no desire to have an AF or acquire any of their charge cards. Lol pftttt! It's kinda funny to me too when people brag about NPSL as there really is a limit!! Hahaha! :-)

Yep! No AF for BCE, however, cashback is less. The person I'm dating actually has the BCP, and I make fun bc they have an AF haha even if 6% on groceries is gooooodddd!!!!
