Remember when I asked about whose name I should put on my AMEX application last week? BTW, thanks for the replies, they helped me make up my mind.

Friday, I applied online in my name. Supposedly they will tell you in two minutes whether you are approved or not. Well, I got this little message that they could not determine approval at that time and I would receive an e-mail reply within two days. So I've been waiting. No e-mail.

Today I was thinking I should call them and see if I could find out anything. Then I went to get the mail and there were our cards! I couldn't believe it - less than one week after I applied!

Cash rebates, here we come! (Of course, still paying the balance every month.) We are planning an addition for our house next year and I am just ecstatic about getting a rebate on money we would have to spend anyway.

I think I have read a few posts about people who have an AMEX card getting their purchases and statements downloaded into Quicken. Does AMEX categorize your purchases or can you do it yourself? I have some pretty specific categories and would like to track them myself, but I like the idea of downloading everything.
