Question about converting AMEX Blue to BCP

[ Edited ]

So I got my Amex Blue (just the plain jane version) in April 2011. 

 

Now when I login online, there is an offer to upgrade to BCP. I'm interested, but I know that others here are not able to upgrade because of the AF and the CARD Act. 


If Amex does let me, will there be a hard pull? And has anybody been able to upgrade within the first 13 months?

 

Thanks!

If you are eligible for the PC it will not be a hard pull. I know from experience. Good luck!

Re: Question about converting AMEX Blue to BCP

Though it shows the card is eligible, it would not let you change the card for 12-13 months. Few of us tried upgrade and it fails to upgrade. You can give it try and let us know if you are able to do it before 12 months.
