    Should I apply? 11th Sep 18 at 7:21 PM

    I've done an eligibility checker for Aqua, CapitalOne, Barclaycard and they have all said I'm not eligible. On the other hand, American Express has given me a 9.5/10 chance of getting a card. Should I apply?

    Well done! - Times have definitely changed, AMEX used to be one of the strictest lenders when it came to applying for their cards. It is a Great card for cash back though (I cancelled my plat charge card a few years ago and have been using the everyday credit card ever since)

    Hi everyone,

    It was the platinum everyday cashback credit card.

    Congratulations. Reading your posts on other threads I can see that you have had a recent decline from Capital One, you are only 2 weeks past your 18th birthday and have only 'fair' credit so you have really achieved something here in getting the best cashback credit card as your first ever card. Just remember to pay it off in full every month as paying interest will wipe out the value of the cashback and don't go building up debt.
