Two American Express cards

Does anyone have two different American Express cards?  I have BCP, but also want Costco true earning.  Can I apply for another one?

Re: Two American Express cards

I currently have four. I believe the only restrictions are, you can't apply for two of the same cards within 30 days and there is a finite limit on the number of cards. I understand that limit is around six personal and six business cards.

Re: Two American Express cards

I just got the Blue Sky with them a few weeks ago and was wondering the same thing. I want to apply for the Blue Cash but not sure if I should do it so soon after getting my first card with them.

Re: Two American Express cards

Someone here was declined for another card for having to many cards with Amexco. He closed one and was approved for the new one afterwards. I think it was 9 cards or so.
