Amex Blue Cash Everyday Card Upgrade: What You Should Know
The account should be open for at least 14 months before requesting an upgrade.
American Express only allows upgrades to cards within the same card family. For example, you cannot upgrade from Amex Blue Cash Everyday to a business card or co-branded card.
If you upgrade to an American Express card with an annual fee, the charge will appear on the new card's first monthly statement.
You will not be eligible for any initial bonus offers or introductory 0% APR offers associated with the new card, unless they're included as part of the upgrade offer.
Amex Blue Cash Everyday card upgrades do not require a hard inquiry on your credit report, so there's no effect on your credit score.
An Amex Blue Cash Everyday card upgrade typically takes just a few minutes. If you are approved, you should receive your card within 7-10 days from the approval date. Your card number won't change, but you will receive a new card with an updated expiration date and security code.
You can use your old card until the new one arrives, and it will have all the benefits of the new card as soon as the upgrade is complete. Your current credit limit and APR will carry over to the new card, as will any unredeemed rewards, unless stated differently in the upgrade terms.
