American Express Blue

Anyone know anything about this specific card? anyone want to divulge their income and scores and what CL they ended up getting? I'm looking for a HIGH CL for transferring over all my balances while they're offering 0%

Let me know!

Thanks!

Household income $62K, approved for 10K, but that was in December, 2006.  Hubby has his own separate card.  Amex Blue gave him 10K also.  Amex recently gave him a $5K increase.
 
My scores in Dec., 2006 were  TU 702, Equifax 730 and Experian 720. 
 
Your credit must be exceptional with 0% on balance transfers!!!!  WTG!!!:smileyhappy:

Re: American Express Blue

oh! heh, nono, I haven't been offered that, i jsut saw that that was being offered on the site under "get a credit card." So...the 0% is only for very very good scores?

BTW, waht was your util of current credit for you two when you got the card?

Re: American Express Blue

I guess I should just share: All my scores are hovering around 720, some as high as 740 some 710 or so. I currently have around 30% Util, income around 95K, just looking to get a card with zero to transfer over.

think it's possible?

SandyK <---------------------------Looking on Amex site for 0% balance transfers on any card for the life of the balance LOL. 
 
In December, 2006 my util was 35% and under.  Since then I have applied for more cards and util has risen to 50% :smileysad: thus I am paying off accounts right now and finally my scores are rising again to the 700's.  Inquiries hurt. 
 
Hubby takes a different road.  His util is atleast 50% to 65%, but he is of the opinion that he doesn't want a lot of cards. He uses the credit lines made available to him.  He does great with his lines and doesn't spend 1/3 of the time with his credit like I do.   He gets approved for the good stuff too!

Re: American Express Blue

Sure it's possible with your great scores!!!  :smileyhappy:
 
I am happy with the Citi Upromise Card that I activated today and was approved online for.  ZERO percent on balance transfers for 12 months and NO FEE.  Approved instantly online.  $4,500.00 CL.  You may fair real well if 12 months is okay with you.  This zero percent is for balance transfers only.  My purchases would be 14.24% variable rate.
 
Would share hubby's FICO scores with you, but he has never ever applied for his.  Only credit reports.  :smileyindifferent:

Amex, Citi and Bank of America seem to be pretty generous with the high credit limits.  You should be able to ask for what you want.  Give them a call. 
 
Good luck!!!!!

Re: American Express Blue

Hmmm, looks like it's 0% on purchases, not BTs...that's odd. though, 5% on BTs isn't horrible...I'll have to see if it's worth it.
