Amex downpour at my house!

Amex downpour at my house!

So, yes! It was raining American Express cards on me today.

 

The mailman and UPS brought me some goodies. Today, I received my Blue Cash Preferred, Gold Card and, Platinum Card. And BOY! was the packaging on that Platinum something special. And, no AFs this first year on the Gold or Platinum. I'm still expecting the NFCU AMEX and my new pretty pink Discover card so, I still have more to look forward too.

 

So far, my app spree cost me an initial 8 points with EQ and EX but, EQ has already given me those points back. I continue to brace myself for any drops as the accounts start showing up on my reports. Looks like the inquiries haven't made much of an impact. But, it's still early so, we'll see. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the weather. It's raining goodness my way!

 

Ahhhh, November has turned into a bountiful month.

No AF for the Platinum? Was that a targeted offer?

Also, great post title ☔️!

The platinum AMEX is through Ameriprise. No AF for the first year.

(BTW, you don't have to be an Ameriprise Financial Client to get the card. I'm not.)

 

No SUB but, from what I understand, you'd still be able to apply for the Plat directly from AMEX and still get the SUB later. So, if I decide to stay with Plat, i'll probably switch over to AMEX direct.

I was approved on Wednesday 11/8, the cards were shipped on Friday 11/10 and I received them on Monday, 11/13.

 

Sorry for the delayed response. I couldn't answer from my phone because I didn't have my password to this account handy.

 

Hope that helps.
