First Big Rewards Card!
Ahighfill Cardholder

Fico: 702 TU: 728 EQ: 729

I have 7 open accounts and an average age of credit of 2 yrs 7 mos. 27% utilization, 0 derogatroy marks, and 100% on-time payments. I was a little worried applying for this care because I haven't had very long of credit history and a pretty low number of open accounts.. I was town between this card, Chase Preferred, Milage Plus, Alaska Sky Miles, Barclay,  and Capitol One Venture. What got me with this one is the 70,000 bonus (limited time) and the companion ticket upon renewal each year. Application process was a breeze! Literally only a couple minutes to fill out, and within the time of hitting the submit button and my screen loading, I got a CONGRATULATIONS on the next page. Instantly got an email to register my account, which I did and opened to view that I got approved for a $10,000 CL. Once I redeem my bonus for this card, I think I'm also going to apply for the Chase Preferred so I'll have two cards to redeem with tons of different airlines. In the mean time, I've very excited to start using this card and racking up those rewards. Spend smart and earn big!

So much better then the Delta Gold
gvilleboy Cardholder

This card is a no brainer over the Delta Gold card. You can't beat the free companion certificate each year. I personally have never had any trouble with American express customer service. I love the mileage booster after you spend so much each year. The free checked bags & you can get upgraded on flights pretty easy.

Great for getting skymiles through Delta
RECRANGER Cardholder

I love this card when I travel with Delta, it gets you extra luggage and more miles. I use it to pay for all my travel expenses (including gas), and often when I go on vacation. Constantly getting miles for use is great. They also have an insurance package using this card for rental cards. If you use your card a lot and repay it quickly (above what's required) they will increase your maximum amount to fit your spending/repayment habbits -- it's help increase my credit score because it shows a much lower usage %. I've never regretted using this card.

surprising approval!
Anonymous Cardholder

building credit and a friend suggested this card because of the miles bonus. surprisingly approved with 627 score and limit of 1,400 (womp! wondering if starting at gold would have given a better starting limit). but i am super excited to be in the Amex family. planning to use as a charge card and pay off to hopefully get a line increase.
