There is an introductory APR as low as 0.00% for 6 months. This intro rate only applies towards purchases. Be cautious that some card issuers may charge higher rates and fees for cash advances.
The APR of 13.24% is variable, meaning that the rate can change as U.S. prime rates fluctuate. You can find out how to compute your APR in the programs terms and conditions. For example, you may be instructed to add 5.4% to the U.S. prime rate.
This card is a cash back card, where you can expect cash rewards for your purchases.
Credit Record Needed:
Based on the FICO score recommendation, applicants should have a great credit record. A FICO score of at least 737 is recommended for a higher chance of approval for the Blue Cash® from American Express, but is not required. There are a number of other factors that this issuer may also consider when making decisions for approval.
The grace period listed for the Blue Cash® from American Express is at least 20 days. So interest charges will not be applied during those days.
This card is intended for consumers, or "personal use".
American Express acceptance among businesses is moderate, but global. You should not have a difficult time finding businesses that will accept this card as a form of payment.
The approval rate for this card is at a maximum. If you believe that you fall into the credit record of "Good Credit" then you will have a better chance for approval. Furthermore, if your FICO score is close to or higher than 737, then your chance of approval may be greater than other applicants.
Great news for applicants that do not want to wait on a application status. This card offer may give instant approval decisions. Remember, this may not be true in all cases, where application information may not be complete, questionable or for other reasons. When applying on-line, the system will normally show your approval status shortly after submitting your application. Credit cards normally take 1 or 2 weeks to arrive after your application is approved.
