Re: What Credit Card Do You Use When You're On a Date!?

[ Edited ]

Back when I had better credit it was ALWAYS the American Express card. By far the most easily recognizable card on the market and always regarded as a symbol of wealth regardless of how misguided this stereotype is.

 

Trust me though, guys, you are better off pulling out your First Premier card on a first date. If that's the reason they don't want a second date then you would have had MUCH bigger problems than which credit card to use on a date.

This is a gem of advice here.
