Mourning the Demise of Three American Express Credit Cards

Blue from American Express: No Longer AvailableAs a credit card bank, we like American Express a lot. Why? Because the company consistently offers excellent customer service, and their cards typically have very consumer-friendly terms and conditions associated with them (this report says it all.)

So we are sorry to report that three popular American Express cards are no longer available. The cards are:

  • Blue from American Express®

  • Blue Cash® from American Express

  • Blue Sky from American Express®

These cards were great, because they each offered 0% intro APR on new purchases for 12 months, and each featured a generous rewards program. Introductory balance transfers were not free (2.99% for 12 months) but, on the plus side, you didn't have to pay a balance transfer transaction fee.

These cards may return, but there's no way of knowing if or when.

There are still two Amex cards to which you can transfer a credit card balance and pay no balance transfer fee. These are:

  • The TrueEarnings® Credit Card from Costco and American Express, which offers:

    • An introductory balance transfer APR of 1.99% for the first 6 months of Cardmembership, as long as the transferred balances post to your account during the first 30 days of Cardmembership and

    • 0% Introductory APR for Purchases for the first 3 months of Cardmembership.

  • The Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express, which offers:

    • An introductory balance transfer APR of 2.9% for the first 6 months of Cardmembership, as long as the transferred balances post to your account during the first 30 days of Cardmembership and

    • 2.9% Introductory APR for Purchases for the first 3 months of Cardmembership.
