What's the latest on Amex's limit of credit cards per person/business?



5



-1, erm... +1=5.



Is that total, or is it separate for business and personal?



Does this include co-branded as well?



IINM, yes.



Well I just got approved for a 6th card. No recon required.



6th credit cards , or some are charge cards ?



I guess that explains. 1 is BP I am assuming it's a charge.


Ah, I see... I thought it's 5 total products

On that note, I only have 4 credit cards. What else should I go for?

A DL card maybe? Increased bonuses now. Or the new blue for biz.

I missed a payment and I can see it on credit sesame. My credit score dipped by 80 points. What are my options? It was kohls charge that my wife occasionally uses. Is there a way to remove this. This is my first late payment.

Pay it off in full ASAP, then write a letter to Kohl's CEO saying you missed the payment by accident, point out that the bill is already paid in full, and ask for a one-time removal of the late from your credit reports (which you might want to mention are otherwise clean).

Writing a letter to the CEO sounds like overkill. You can prob just call the cc & do as he said above.

It's not overkill, because such letters never actually make it to the CEO. Someone in the executive office will handle it. A phone call to the number on the CC, on the other hand, is unlikely to reach someone with the power to make changes to the credit reporting.

If I don't activate my credit card right away does the annual fee still get charged at the end of the first month?

I did not. So what's the point of activation?

If you are applying for the same card, regardless you will only get one bonus. You need to sign up for any 2 of the three cards offered.
