I arrived in 1971 with Amex!


You beat me.  I got a Green Amex in '74 and a Gold in '75.  I had arrived! 

The thrill lasted 6 months or so but I stopped using it and Amex canceled it around '78.

I have reestablished credit over the last couple years
so my moniker is, well, rather out of date.

Hmmm......I don't think it was any one card that made me feel like I had arrived.  When I started out on this journey, I wanted an available credit limit of at least $100,000.  I have that now, so I am at that "arrived" feeling.  I have some pretty great cards in my wallet, but they are just that, cards.  What you can do with those cards is what is important to me.  My "arrived" moment has more to do with flexibility and security.  I have a great job that allows me to pay for most of what I want with cash, but if I ever needed to use credit, I have it.  Does that make sense?

Re: What is your "I've arrived" Card?

Getting approved for my Discover IT card definitely has proven to me that I have arrived well into primeland, After getting denied twice in my previous years for this card. Plus "IT" is SO gorgeous in my wallet aside from My Amex Zync. :smileywink:

This makes great sense, but there must be a card that you wanted and finally aquired to have your "arrived" moment. I too finally broke the $100K mark and finally can breathe :smileyhappy: knowing that I have accomplished my ultimate goal and I dont have to depend on using all my cash when I can use my credit then PIF at the end of the month.

Re: What is your "I've arrived" Card?

I thought I had arrived when I got my Chase Freedom card even though it only came with a 500.00 limit but when I was approved last week for the Amex BCE for 5.5k, I knew I had arrived lol
