This card will not help your credit, as it is a business card.  So if you'd like to apply for another Amex today, to avoid a hard pull, maybe apply for a personal card that has an increased offer, like the Delta Gold, Delta Platinum, or Hilton Surpass.

Trying to avoid any annual fees though. Any other recommendations? Also, is it too late to avoid a hard pull if I already applied for the business card today?

nothing wrong with having both

+2

Charge some here, charge some there?

I just don't see the point of having "identical" cards (other then the signup bonus). So at the end of the day, this is 2% back and the citi is 2% back. This can transfer to miles, citi cannot. This does not have price protection, citi does.

I'm a rather organized person and having lots of cc's scares me quite honestly. I know most here will laugh at that but if I don't use them then why have them and if I do use them, I need to remember to pay them.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

how is this a 2% back? if ur redeeming points for charges then 2 points isnt 2 cents and if ur using them for what theyre meant for, theyre a lot more than 2%

I guess if you transfer to Plenti, they are worth exactly 1 cent each

You can redeem them for GCs, so they're basically worth 1% if you go that route, although that's not a very smart route.

There are many many benefits to having a bunch of open credit cards, not the least of which is improving your credit vastly by keeping them current. Just enroll in autopay and don't really spend, it's helpful if every few months you make a purchase and don't pay it off till yourstatement prints. Also, for a controversial benefit that can make you a bunch of money.. piggybacking

You do realize that using dan's link does not increase your approval chances, right? #JustSayin'

That is correct. I just wanted Dan to know that I used his link. I could have phrased it better, though.

English? I'm starting to suspect that the Chief Rabbi of New York is perhaps Chief Rabbi of Ranana.
