I finally received my AMEX Cash Preferred card on Tuesday, and will be getting my AMEX Gold Card on Friday. The good news for me is that I have to payoff the remaining balance on shutters I purchased for my house. I will most definetly be charging those shutters on one of those cards if not half of the balance on each card. Then I will pay off the balances.
The year that I became an AMEX card holder was in 1987, and it is on the new card. I wish that they continued backdating. I would have inherited 35 year credit history with them. Oh well. I am gardening for at least 2 years when all of my recent inquiries age off.
