Amex Blue cash approved!

Just got approved for an Amex Blue Cash with a SL of 5k!


A little back story...


Years ago, I had an Amex Zync charge that went unpayed and was charged off. Fast forward a few years and I joined the military and got my **** in order. I payed off my debt that I owed Amex and waited for a month. I apped for an AMEX ED and was instantly approved for 1K. A few months later I apped for a Platinum and PRG and was also instantly approved. Being a service member I am exempt from yearly fees per SCRA. Just about a month ago I got my first 3x cli for my ED and now I got approved for a BC for 5k! Its been a long time coming but my hard work is paying off. I couldn't have done it without the help of this site.
