    I already have Amex Bluecash Everyday card. I have been using this for 15 months. My 0 APR period is over now. Can I now apply for a new Amex card (Everyday or Cash Magnet) and still get the welcome bonus and 0 introductory APR?

      Hi Jabir,

      Thanks for your comment and I hope you are well.

      You may be eligible for those new card offers. However, once you apply for the card online, if you are ineligible for the welcome offer you will receive a message towards the end of the application process. If you are eligible for the welcome bonus the application will process. If you receive a message that you’re not eligible for the welcome bonus you can choose to cancel the application prior to a credit check.

      As a friendly reminder, carefully review the Product Disclosure Statement of the product before applying. You may also contact the card provider should you have any questions about their policy.

      Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to us again for further assistance.

      Best,
      Nikki
