When online paying my consumer cards I was presented with a notification that I was pre-approved for the card.
I debated for a bit and decided to apply.
Approved, but for only 2K
I have the AMEX Delta Platinum at 12K
The AMEX Clear at 10K
I assume I'm close to their comfort level.
LLC, been in business for 9 years.
Provided my Tax EIN
90K in business income
150K+ in personal income
Appreciate the info.
So today I log in to pay the consumer cards and in the header it asks me to apply for the Gold Business Card.
50,000 after $5000.00 spend within first 3 months.
It asks the same information as the SimplyCash Plus card did.
Not sure if this is pre-approved or just marketing.
It knows my business since there is a link to apply for a different business.
A flat APR for purchases
"We have used information about you and/or your business on file with American Express to extend this offer to you. This offer is based on the accuracy of that information. Information that we have on file will be used for the application associated with this offer. We will only request additional information that we require from you at this time. If you desire to change any information we have on file, you may do so by calling the number on the back of your Card, however, you may no longer be eligible for this offer."
Curious if any of this is indicitative of a pre-approval.
Thanks much as always.
Keep in mind that for the current business Gold Card the annual fee is no longer waived the first year.
A fixed interest rate showing is in your favor.
How long have you had your oldest Amex card?
Did you get a sign up bonus on your SimplyCash Plus?
Unless you are doing a lot of spending for the Gold rewards categories you may be better off with just the SimplyCash Plus.
