Hit or Miss

Selling my soul to the credit card devil. My assistant Patrick got a new American Express Blue Card in the mail the other day and I fell in love with its translucent simplicity and beauty. So I foolishly filled out the online application form myself — visions of secure online payments dancing in my head.

I’ve since been called by American Express three times in the past 3 days (I’ve never been called once about my Discover or Mastercard). And checking their website leads me to believe that I won’t get a free USB card reader like I thought I would… At least there’s no annual fee (for now, anyway)…

AmEx is big on customer service. It may be worth a call to tell them you thought you’d get the card reader. There’s a chance they’ll send you one to keep you happy.
