by the way. how much was the approval for? and what are your scores?
I logged in to AMEX site to look at my wife's AMEX account to see when her introductory 0% expires. She had a message that she was pre-approved and to apply for the Gold Card. I never seen that on my account, and was envious. I actually prefer the Platinum card as it is the ultimate card for me, mostly status and in my mind, "the official card to declare I'm back." I used to look on a weekly basis and never saw the Pre-Approved invite to apply. So I stopped looking 4 months ago. Anyway, I quickly log into my account and of course, no message for me. I decide to take a look. Didnt believ I would Today....however, was a different day. I see the Pre-approval and click the apply button. Funny how 30 secs can feel like 3 minutes......
Welcome to Platinum Card® Membership! We're excited that you have chosen American Express again.
I pumped my fists and celebrated like I hit a game winning basket. I called my wife and she was unenthused like "really, so you got another credit card. I hope you didn't apply and get me one." Just killed my happy moment so I am reaching out to my forum family.
Wow ! That's a great story. I just got an approval on a Platinum card today too. I don't really need it, but I think for many of us, it's a precieved status symbol for us. I am happy with my Gold Card, but I really wanted the Platinum. It was a goal for me too. I do not care about the $550 AF. I think the benefits/rewards over the term of a year will squash that out and then-some. Again I didn't need the card, but I wanted the indulgance none the less... LOL Plus I am taking a trip to London, and a really wanted to bring this card with me, so I look forward to seeing it in my mailbox tomorrow.
Congrats to you, and Enjoy your card bro. Don't let the wife kill your joy...lolkk
we're here for you buddy. congrats!
now go and make sure you use up all those perks to cancel out the huge AF!
