AMEX is a yesterday company. Not what the used to be!
I had an Amex Platinum Card for many years and paid their hefty fee for the service they once provided. I currently have an 806 Fico and over $140,000 in available credit from other card companies.
My wife got this card 18 months ago , we maxed it out for the reward points and the 0% interest. We then paid the balance off in one payment, leaving us with around $96 in rewards dollars and the initial $150 bonus.
I cannot begin to tell you how impossible it was to cash out our rewards with multiple reps that were apathetic and could care less about “our” rewards. I could be more descriptive, but lets just say their service downright sucks! and I get 1.5 to 5% back on other cards, so they are not offering anything better than the worst cards out there.
Whatever you do, DON’T GO WITH AMEX! Take it from a financial professional with outstanding credit and tremendous success with money (debt free).
