Application Tips


Amex Application Tips


  • Safe to Apply: Amex is the safest bank for trying your luck at earning a new welcome bonus offer. They don’t usually issue a hard pull when denying your application, and if you already have an Amex card, they won't usually issue a hard pull when approved for another one. Plus, they’ll now warn you during the application process if you’re not eligible for the bonus.

  • Lifetime Rule: If you've ever had the same card before, you are most likely prohibited from earning a welcome bonus offer for the card if you apply now. Fortunately you'll be warned during the application process if this is the case. Amex is known to "forget" that you've had a card after about 7 years.

  • 90 Day Rule: You can get at most two credit cards within 90 days. This rule does not apply to Pay Over Time (charge) cards.

  • 5 credit card max: Amex usually won't approve applications for new credit cards if you already have 5 or more Amex credit cards or 10 or more charge cards.

  • Better Offers: You may be able to get a better offer than the best available public offer. Details here.

  • Hard inquiries combine into 1 when approved same day

[…] some further savings here with a card that earns a category bonus on Amazon purchases, like the new Amazon Business card or the AT&T Access More card if you have it (no longer available for new applicants). […]

What Chase card gives 5% back at Amazon? If it’s an UR card I’m signing up immediately.

PJ Rizz

Ok. Thanks .

Robert

Just applied and immediate approval. 5% is fantastic and for a no annual fee card it’s hard to pass up, even for the infrequent Amazon shopper. $125 gift card is good too. Very nice to hold the biz version of the card as the personal versions offer similar benefits.
