Just called the automated line--10K. Decent!
Very decent to start out with! I'm so happy for you, especially with the awesome backdating! Don't expect to see it on your reports for another 1-2 months though, haha.
Got my card today--yes, 10K @17.24% APR. It even says Member Since '96 on it! Now I'm considering calling and asking for a replacement Green card.
wait?? mrshush. what was your amex blue limit at the time of approval? i started out at 2k and after 3 months increased to 6k. i wanted to make sure it was a soft approval, so i didn't take the phone automated route or online route.
