Had to call and verify information due to very recent move, but was then instantly approved. Went back to Amex webpage for this card, and the welcome bonus had changed from $250 to $300 back after $1000 spent in 3 months. I called and asked them to apply this increased bonus to my account as it had come up maybe 5 minutes after I applied, but they refused. Despite this customer service issue, this will be my go-to gas/grocery card for sure.

TU 740, EX 735
Income: $75k
Got approved for only $3k and I am not sure why. The limit looks rather low to be honest.

I got a $1000 limit with an average score of 675. I am a little disappointed that my limit is so low because I use the card a lot of grocery and gas. My other cards give me about $4-5k limit.

I got this card with a $8000 limit. Score was 740 on average. One thing to note is that not every supermarket is considered one by Amex. I find that only the big chain stores are. Small boutique groceries are not considered supermarkets by Amex.
