Amex Business Cards Approved! Blue Business Plus and Business Gold Card

Hey everyone!

So while working on my computer sending out emails, still haven’t slept and already 5am, I decided to go to my Amex account and paid my cards (personal gold + plat) for the week. I ended up browsing the cards section as I’ve been thinking of adding a business card for my sole prop and I know I’ll be paying my taxes pretty soon, heck that’ll take care of the MS for the SUB. I bit the bullet and applied for the BBP and was instantly approved! Though it’s a $2k SL, I figure that’s more than I’ll need for my side spends and the perfect addition for my other Amex cards. I’m stoked as it’s my first revolver with them, but I’ve read so much about possible combined HP on one day app for charge and revolver, so I crunched the numbers on the MS and decided if AF made sense for me, and I took a shot at the Business Gold as well for the 50k and was approved! All my sleepiness just went away.
Immediately added the cards to my account, but I passed out before I could even log out 😅

Thank you guys for all the amazing information you provide for everyone and making this community!

Oh and I’m still waiting to see if it was a HO or SP, haven’t gotten any notifications yet on my credit alerts. Fingers crossed!

@FinStar I think it's time I get me one of those, I feel like I'm missing out. Any suggestions?

Oh lawd. Well uhh I mean technology auto correct all that. I’m sure it’s because I typed Ho Ho Ho too much this past holidays. Yeah I think it’s that. I’ll bet 69 MR points it was sheesh

Well so far no HO in sight, gotta keep reports CLEAN.
