Last night I called and asked for an increase on my chase card and it was approved. Feeling good about that today I got the stupid idea to go for a new amex card. I was instantly approved for the card. I am for some reason feeling guilty about getting the card. I know that amex is not a very good card to get in this economy. How should I start using the card to not cause any AA.

Thanks for the kind words. I got the gold rewards card.

Congrats on the new Amex card. Dont be nervous with the card. Just use it like any other card and just pif when the statement cuts. What evevr happens let it happen. I had long love hate relationship with Amex and I am treating my Amex Business Platinum Card like any other business card.

I would give my eye teeth for an AMEX card. If I could get it reaged to 1978 and reported as such wouldn't care if I had to close it the next day! Unfortunately I may be on the permanent "S" list in AMEX-land. Good enought to get back in with all but them. (I backdoored my way into Chase so who knows about them.)
