So this morning I talked myself into applying for the Amex Blue and, after having to conference call with wachovia so they could verify my address, was approved! I was too distracted by the news that I was approved to hear what the CL is going to be.
So my question is, would it be too greedy to go for a charge card at the same time? I really want an Amex Gold, but I don't want to push my luck too far. I don't really need the Gold card, but dangit I want the satisfaction of knowing I have it anyway! Also, I'm not sure if they would use the same credit pull from this morning or if it would be a second hard pull.
Right now I have a BofA $1500 CL and Chase $2000 CL + whatever the Blue ends up at.
Suggestions? Leave it be and keep my eyes on the mail for an offer? Go for the Green for a while to build up to a Gold offer? Or just go for it and see what happens?
As long as they stick to TU or EX, I'm good to go credit score wise, EQ is a little more iffy.
It is a lot easier to get than the blue. I got a amex credit card and charge card on the same day and it only cost me one inquiry. Better hurry if you want to keep as one. I use them both all the time, and you can link the points together. Just PIF!
I know there's probably zero reason for me to get a Gold instead of a Green as far as usage and benefits. Bottom line though is that for some reason I really wanted it, and I'll bite the bullet on the extra AF just to have it!
