Re: Just got approved for AmEx BCE

I was approved for a 2,500 CL      I was gonna wait until it came in instead of calling, but I got tired of looking for it in the mail everyday.  Apparently Ill get my card around Dec. 21    :smileysad:       I was planning on using it on Dec 13 to put 450 on it, oh well.  

 

I feel super happy I got in the door with AmEx exp. with the BCE card.    After seeing me real score for the first time I say that I was rather blown away and felt kind of stupid I didnt apply for other sweet reward credit cards sooner.  

 

I keep day dreaming about all thise 3,2,1 cash back ill be saving, lol.

That's a good starting CL, Congratulations!!

 

Just out of curiosity, why did you go for the BCE, instead of the BCP? I have not familiarized myself with the BCE so I'm not exactly sure what the 3,2,1 cash rewards are with this card (as you mentioned above)

 

I have the BCP and I know it's 6% back at grocery stores, 3% back at gas stations & dept stores and 1% back everywhere else.

 

What are the 3,2,1 categories with the BCE?


Starting Score: 583
Current Score: 3-03-12-EQ-802 TU-806 EX-798 (EQ Beacon 9: 804 Lender Pull 3-08-12) All FICO's
Goal Score: 800+ across all three

Re: Just got approved for AmEx BCE

The BCE cash back categories are  >

 

 Earn 3% cash back at supermarkets.

• Earn 2% cash back at gas stations and department stores.
• Earn 1% cash back on all other eligible purchases

 

I really love that there are no limits on cash back rewards.  Its one of the reasons why I went with this card.  

 

I would totally have been willing to spend the 75 dollar fee for the BCP but I dont spend enough money at the moment to make it worth it in the end.     Im in saving as much money as I can while I live at home for free mode.
