Loving Amex Delta Gold!!

This is a very great card! I'm racking up points, almost already at that $500 spend after less than a month haha!
I got an offer today for an extra 1,500 points for spending $40 at partnered restaurants- which is completely doable since I barely cook any more lol!
All in all- I'm loving it. It's currently at $5,500; i might ask for $10k at 61 days! Lol

you crazy with these non full 3x CLI on Amex!!

 

I really think FR from CLI is way less than something else odd or off... mad spending based on reported income or big carrying balances.... but normal CLI... nah...

This card does credit you with miles fast! I hate the PRG's slowness in giving you the points you earn; I've had to wait for 2 full billing cycles to see my MR points.

Racking up now

Hit em up in 61days 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Loving Amex Delta Gold!!

Yeah... My BCE takes like two statements to get me my cashback! I've actually been using this card instead of the BCE, just to hit that $500 spend-then my normal spending patterns will resume based on which card offers me more cash.
I do mean miles!
Well, the reason I wouldn't request the whole 3xcli is that I alreadt have a $24,500 Amex BCE, which puts me at $30k exposed w Amex. I'm in a weird credit stage where I feel like I need to cut back some of my old accounts and grow some of my new, much more prime ones.
It does seem like that FR thing is a bit over mentioned lol
Well, I guess if I asked for $16.5k in a month or so(had it since June 3) and get approved, I can get rid of one of my GE cards that had a similar limit! Lol

Credit is a neverending game! Dayum!
