jen,I don't know if they will approve you or not? I am willing to bet that they will pull a hard one on you.
Fee? I'm filled out the info on www.lendingtree.com and got a fee free optima platinum offer with 0% BT for 6 months. When I applied, it was a hard inquiry, but I got the call today that it was approved and will be here within 7 business days.
She is talking about the platinum charge card which has a $300 annual fee.
Go to AMEX's web site and check what benefits the Platinum card has to offer. I feel that the $300 fee is well justified........only if you will be using the benefits!
It won't do you no good to blow $300 a year to not use the benefits.....unless you're trying to be the envy of all your friends!
yeah its an uber status card, but for some that itself is worth $300... vanity has its price...
you could get an optima platinum for no annual fee it looks pretty spiffy too..
I am too scared to apply for the Optima Plat. is it harder to get than the Platinum charge?
I am trying to take it one step at a time with Amex. I have to admit I am partially interested for the status of it all. (Just on a personal level. I am by no means a "card flasher" ) But just because like so many here I was in sub-prime hell for a long time before getting my report all cleaned up. I was pretty surprised to receive the upgrade offer in the first place because I have only had the green card for 6 months. The benefits do seem to be worth the fee and I would most likely use them. I just wanted to see what opinions others had about the card. Is it as good as it sounds? Has anyone ever done the free companion ticket deal for travel via business or 1st class? How did it work?
I am planning to go to Europe next year and it might be handy then. We do travel a lot but not business class so I am not really familiar with the rates. I will have to do a little research. If it is a reasonable price for the business ticket then that feature alone would be worth the membership.
JUST DO IT!!! You said they only want your signature and SSN. To upgrade you to Platinum requires them to switch a few numbers and mail out a card!
Well I did. I bit the bullet and called. I got it!!! The card should arrive in a week. Then I can choose to close the green and replace it with plat or keep both accounts. Woo hoo! I'm so excited. Now time to start checking out the deals for my European vacation. Thanks for all of the replies.
Congrats Jen After receiving 2 preapprovals and 2 cards, I believe AMEX preapprovals are "usually" the real deal
Bkev congrats to you as well, now are you jumping on the wagon or are your trying to set a record? LOL
Thanks Momof3. Much Appreciated.
Amex preapprovals are the real thing.. unlike the other companies. But do you really need a $300 annual fee card? A gold card has just about the same benefits for $70 annually.
Way 2 go Jen!!!...don't you wish you could take back all that worryin'? I always do...even if denied
LOL Nave. Yes I do! I tend to be a worrier and I always say to myself, "later you are going to regret all this time you wasted" Never helps though. Should of seen me when I was waiting over the weekend for approval on my auto loan. Now that was a long 2 days. Never apply on a Friday!
which card did you apply for jen? the charge or optima?
It was the charge card. I haven't tried for the Optima..........yet
Congratulations, hon. Your one of the few that carry the Amex Platinum. I would love to have one, but I'm too cheap to pay $300 a year (it must have something to do with being an accountant). Enjoy!
