Personally, I find AmEx Blue some what undesirable because at least 50% of my current purchases are made with merchants that do not accept AmEx. That doesn't mean the same is true for everyone though; nor does it mean it will always be true for me.


We started discussion with our building supply place today about our addition, which we are about to start, and HE said HE was doing the same thing with a HOME he is building -- charging materials for it on Blue and then paying them!

He said "Why not get that little extra, especially on a big thing like an addition or home?"

Yes, they DO accept it, so we may do it, too -- especially with the 6-months with no interest period.
