lol @ baller status. I never felt that way but I will think about it next time I check in.
That Amex ain't no cap1? IMO
I hate this waiting game of gardening.. but its for the best. And my DH and I <3 costco and we totally need a AMEX for that!
Omg hahah now you guys make me want a PRG! I mean really, if I PIF already, isn't $175 a year worth it for a young 21 year old like myself just to be able to pull out a Gold at the golf course or tropical smoothie!? Hahahahaha I vote yes!!
If you can spend a lot on that card, definitely go for it.
It's a nice card.
I mean that's exactly what I do now for my BCE! I use it for verizon bill which is $200 a month plus everything else that isn't category covered by Chase and Discover. Do you think itd be worth it for me? How much do I really need to spend to make it worth the $175? I think itd be hard to make the $2000 in 3 months comfortably for the bonus but maybe I could.
It depends what your goals are. If you really want the card for some status (which to my mind is non-existent but opinions differ!) and that's worth $175, then sure, go for it. A lot of people do this for other cards (Amex Plat, CSP) where the actual benefits aren't there given spending but other factors make it worth it.
For benefits, if $2000 in 3 months is a slight stretch, this card won't be the most rewarding (add something like Barclays Rewards to get 2% on the Verizon bill for no AF for example). But again, if it gives you enough satisfaction, $175 is cheap compared to some alternatives!
