Evaluating the old Blue Cash $50K limit – Frequent Miler Good info on the card some of you stil have (me too!). I left this commment: “I always thought my card reset on 12/31. I was alerted on Twitter that it is based on anniversary date, which was new to me. So I called Amex. It appears that there are versions of the card (based on when you applied) that reset in either one of these dates. Luckily, I confirmed my card resets on 12/31 so I need to make a visit to my local mall to get the $6.5k out of the way pronto! I made a note of the csr and date/time of the phone call just in case this issue comes up again.

And we don’t know all the shenanigans yet…
