It Never Hurts To Ask
The worst thing they could so is “no,” right? If you’re actively chasing a credit card welcome or signup bonus, it doesn’t hurt to call and ask for an extension. Some other credit card brands may decide to enact similar extensions soon, in order to stay competitive with American Express.
If you’re still being a responsible credit card user in these times of financial uncertainty, then your provider is probably more willing to offer you some leeway towards your signup bonus. However, if you’ve recently suffered from lost or reduced income, and are struggling to make even minimum payments on a growing credit card balance, then you may find it more difficult to get this kind of request granted.
