AMEX cards just got much less valuable

Recommended Posts


so...they have sour grapes because they can no longer game the system?  No sympathy for them.  Idiocy like that is what tends to kill off good offers...

1 of my 2 Biz SPG's will go, 1 of my 2 BGR's will go.  My Vanilla Gold will go.  My SC+ will go.

What if this is just a GLITCH?

Now someone else is calling it a glitch.

 

About a year ago Mendel was swearing up and down that the multi-browser trick wasn't working for him.  I'm not sure if this is another one of those things or what.

I got the same email.

I hope this is a glitch. Why should amex care if I want to use 10 bucks off at buttnuggets 4 times if I spend 50 bucks. If they do I'll prune a couple cards and move on.

It may not be AXP that cares but rather the very partners from whom those offers emanate...lemonade of the partners and they have no interest in offers.  No partner offers and there are no AXP offers to game or even to just use as originally intended...

I'm still keeping my 3 open D* Amex cards forever.

If this isn't a GLITCH I'm closing the two I mentioned at AF time.

 

My closed Green and SPG cards will report D'95 until they drop 2028 or 2029.

 

I will still have Blue Cash Every Day, Blue Sky and EveryDay as open D'95 cards.

 

I need a plan for moving limits around.  All of the $49,500 on the SPG needs to go somewhere, and I want to move most of the $81,000 I have on the Hilton card to one of the other three surviving revolvers.

If I had 5 open D* cards, I would consider closing a couple, but I'd like to keep the 3 I have open.

My profile these days would be fine without these cards, but the credit nerd in me likes having these anchor 1992 accounts. My AAOA would not change much if I didn’t have them on my reports, but my AAOOA and oldest account age would suffer.

And this mentality is why I still have a Clear card that can't be PC'd to anything better. :)

And I thought I was the only unlucky SOB with a Clear.  Why they just don't allow a PC is beyond me.  I'd nuke the damned thing if it weren't *D back to prehistoric times.

      I got some help previously about opening new accounts, but I was curious more about the impact and possible ramifications. I only have 1 credit card in my name, and it only reports on Experian and TransUnion. The rest are AU cards. I have 8 accounts on Experian and TransUnion and AAoA of about 21 years. My Equifax report is a bit thinner. I pulled CCT, and I'm at 777 EX, 782 TU, and 789 EQ. I have been thinking about about a PenFed credit card and an AMEX revolver. I also may be cosigning a small student loan. I'm not certain on this yet, but it's a possibility. I know that this will cause a score hit of some sort (drop in AA), but I'm not sure how severe. I was thinking about forgoing PenFed and just doing AMEX, but I can't make up my mind. Can anyone give me some insight? I would like to avoid permanently damaging my report in some way. I don't know if 2 cards in such a short time is too much. I appreciate any help.

      There is no paywall.   I did not know this, but found it interesting.

      A "backdoor number" is one that gets you past frontline CSR's directly to Credit Analysts / Credit Departments / Account Managers / Account Specialists (different lenders call 'em different things) - these people/departments have decision-making abilities far beyond frontline CSR's; they can take and review requests for reconsideration of denied CC apps or CLI requests, APR reductions, etc. and implement their decisions.
       
      I can continuously update this first post with the latest information if everyone will post to this thread.  I'll make the change and acknowledge.  We truly appreciate your participation.
