BBC $500 SUB

BBC $500 SUB

$250 for $5,000 in 6 months. Additional $250 for total of $15,000 in 12 months. This is the first time I've ever had any sort of SUB pop up for me on this card. I was going to hold off on applying until I hit my garden goal next week but I don't want to miss out. It doesn't matter if I jump the gun and apply early for this one, but I wanted to wait it out just because I told myself I would. Is this a common SUB for this card? I'd only be able to hit the first $250, but I wasn't expecting any SUB at all so this is a nice surprise to see!

Thanks for the heads up, that makes me feel better. I guess it's perfect timing that it just now started popping up. They must not have been ready to offer it to me before now.

SO, the goal is: BBC sometime between 5/27-6/1. There should be no reason for a HP from AMEX for this so it shouldn't affect anything. (I know it can happen and am prepared if it does, but it's not likely.) and then Cash+ on 6/1! Smiley Happy

@M_Smart007 Will do. I should be pulling the trigger on 5/28. It should most likely be an easy approval, but I have high exposure with AMEX for my income so I'm hoping they don't transplant some of my CL from another card for the approval. I'll easily hit the first $250 for the sub, but the extra $250 is probably a 50/50 chance of happening as I'll have 3 other SUBs I'll be chasing after that one lol.

I have this SUB but only have Business cards with AMEX.  The two Blues in my sig are from March and April.  What is the rule of how many cards in what time span?  I would like to try for a personal AMEX revolver knowing it would likely be a $2k limit or something.  At least I could start the 3x CLI clock running.  I will be clean on EX in a few months but why wait? 

 

I have 4 EX Inq's, and am 3/12 -  I do suspect they will do a HP for my first personal card but who knows?  They are throwing all kinds of big subs at me right now.  Perhaps because I have run so much through their business cards and have been an exemplary customer so far.

Eh, they aren't overly twitchy about credit seeking unless it's excessive or they are not comfortable with something in your profile. When you click on the personal cards when you're logged in does it say "Spiritcraft, you're pre approved" or "Applying to expand your membership with us is easy, Spiritcraft?"
