anyone get email promo to app Blue Cash Everyday?

I got an email from AmEx -- a "limited time offer" to app for BCE and get $100 back for spending a grand in three months.

 

Anyone get this? Approval chances with a 700-ish FICO and a couple of recalcitrant chargeoffs from 2008? If accepted through this promo, can I upgrade to BCP in 6 months?

No, you will have to wait a year to upgrade due to the CARD act.

It's funny because I received the same email this morning about an hour or so before I received my approval email for the Zync card that I applied for this morning.  I almost pulled the trigger after I was approved for the Zync. LOL.

It's a generic offer they send to everyone that signed up to receive offers from Amex. , I got the same email today as well & I was approved fir the BCP a few days ago. 

@MsLady- if you rnded up apping fir the BCE it would've been 1 HP since you just got approved for the Zync. bTW, congrats on your new card!

Thanks. Would it still be 1 HP if I did it today or has that ship sailed?

That ship has probably sailed. It wasn't guaranteed that it would have only been a single HP either, since one card is a charge card and the other a credit card.

Ah yes. You're right. Two different products. Thanks!
