Re: What is tougher to get, AMEX Blue Cash Preferred or US Bank Cash+ Visa?

[ Edited ]

I app'ed recently for a Blue Cash and was declined, err   Correction, I thought I applied for a Blue Cash and the declined letter says Blue Sky -- darnit. :smileymad:


I should of app'd for a zync, since I heard that was easiest to get.   The letter says my score is 733.


Oh well, 2 days later approved for a BofA 123 cash rewards.

Cash+ definitely. I plan to pc from my Flexperks because of the casback they offer for  bill paying. You will need to get your scores up and need a card showing a 5k balance to prove you can handle larger credit lines. It also helps to know what cb they pull from in your state. For us in Ohio it's TransUnion.
