He apped for green card. Lol you were right drkajeFor the record my husband asks before he spends more than 50 bucks on something. He wants to buy a new gun so bad but I'm making him wait until I get the refi done on my duplex. He is an au on all my cards and he carries only zync with him. He also carries his debit card and his nfcu mastercard.

At least some things don't change.
Hope he had success!! File seemed pretty thin to float an Amex application.

He did just post that he app'd the amex green w/ all 3 CRs frozen, and wanting to know what the 7-10 day notice means.
Freezing reports doesn't make sense to me.
IIRC, 7-10 day message usually means no. No idea why someone with frozen reports would apply, though. It's not like Amex would do a SP approval.

Lol he is totally on board with my goals. He sees a lot of value in letting me set the budget and hes the first one to remind me of.our goals when I mention spending money on something that can wait. It goes both ways... I check with him before spending more than 50 bucks on something. Hes actually pretty funny when he jokes about not being able to spend his paycheck but I know hes just joking because he likes knowing everything is being paid and he likes staying up to date on our balances and the status of when we will be able to meet our goals. We recently used the credit cards to pay for part of our wedding and some expenses during our cruise (shore.excursions) we both have been focused on getting those balances taken care of before we make another big purchase. The marriage and cruise was in June and we will be at 0 balance by the end of July. We also paid for a 4k septic system repair using the credit card in April.
For the record my husband asks before he spends more than 50 bucks on something.
That much, lucky guy.

It's awesome you two are on the same page!!
I'm ACM on DGF's Amex Delta but it doesn't report to EQ. I'd love having the $4K limit report but Amex hasn't gotten anything done since I called them to complain in April. Their credit reporting department doesn't have a customer service feel. I always hang up wondering what vitally important thing the call interrupted, LOL!
