USAA Amex

In early Nov I applied for and received Freedom ($6500), Citi Ty ($6000), BCE ($1000). These were my first new cards since college. I currently have an AAoA of 9.1 years, 3 % UTI, and scores of EX(777 - Amex), TU (792), EQ(758) both from here. I am a full USAA member, and they have been bombarding me with offers for their co-branded Amex. I know they don't have a proper rewards system, but i've also read they give high CL's especially full members.  There are no inquiries showing on my EQ report. Should I pull the trigger?

Re: USAA Amex

I love USAA, but IMO their credit card rewards aren't that exciting. But since you're a full member, they may give you a decent size limit if that's what you are looking for.

Yeah they have horrible rewards.  I wouldn't go it.  Not worth it imo.  And I can't testify to whether they give large CLs or not.  But you would have to know if you want a high CL or rewards.  And what if they don't give you a CL that you are after, or a high CL that you could live with, then you are stuck with a SD card and a HP that you'd never get back.

Congrats!  

 

 

Are you just gonna SD it?  Or maybe bal xfer?

 

 

Unless you spend like 17000 in gas every year, then USAA Amex would beat BCE in the gas catagory.  But BCE far and away beats USAA Amex.

Ill just run something though it every couple of months to keep it current. A semi-SD if you will.
