Remarks I have the gold AMEX but this card is great.

I say if you can pay it in one shot and avoid getting into debt this card is good.

What is hard is to buy something of $800 for example then pay it full the next month its almost like buying with a debit card.

overall its just good to have especially in a emergency.

Good luck,

Advantages Of A Charge Card? User Icon on 2008-03-18

Remarks I'm just wondering, what are the advantages of having a charge card?

they don't report to the credit bureau... Right?

and you have to pay the whole balance in full in less than <30 days..

and there's a memebership fee!

please enlighten me on this one.

i recently turned down a gold Preferred AMEX charge card because of the fee

Remarks Having an AMEX on your credit file looks favorable to banks. It shows them that you can handle "paying in full" each month and that you have $$$ to do so.

In your credit mix you are encouraged to atleast have some kind of charge card whether it be AMEX or DINERS.

I personally got my eye on the AMEX One card.

Remarks The only reason why I have an AMEX card is to get the Bank of America AMEX card. BofA is my favorite bank and I love doing business with them.

If you don't mind me asking what credit report they pulled and what ballpark range was your credit score?
