AMEX BCE approved!

 

Applied for Amex BCE on a whim and got approved. Initially, it said pending review, so I went to check the app status and it said approved!!

 

For some reason, I was expecting a rejection so this is a pleasant surprise. This is only my second real credit card after my Chase Freedom card which I got approved for only three and a half weeks ago, although I do have a Macy's store card from Oct '10 which I've only used sparingly. I'm so stoked!!

 

How do I find out my CL before I receive the card? Is there an automated phone service like Chase Freedom?

Re: AMEX BCE approved!

Yay! Congrats!

 

And to find out your CL...just call them up. I believe AMEX is 24/7.

Re: AMEX BCE approved!

The BCE seems like a nice card to have...but I only get preapproval offers for AMEX green and AMEX gold. Not that I need an AMEX card anyway. They are useless on the west coast. LOL.
