Re: AMEX Platinum 100K Offer

  Welp, I applied(12/28/13 drapping :smileytongue:) and was denied; due to too many recently opened accounts.  I called in to see if I could recon, and I was basically told they want to see the new accounts age to at least 6 months.

 

On a positive note, I received no HP. I had been noticing that they soft me at least once a month, and apparently they used that information. I also have an amex savings with a large amount of assets, so not sure if that made them start looking my way in the first place. Either way, I'm a little bummed by the no approval, been a while since I was denied.lol. 

 

another positive note, I was approved for the exxon fleet card, I decided to apply after seeing the recent approvals, so that makes 2 no pg cards within the last month.  Not  sure as of limit yet, as the status page only says approved.

Sorry about the Amex but congrats on the Exxon

Re: AMEX Platinum 100K Offer

Thanks I called amex back and made a few points and asked for a reconsideration again. This time it was granted, I was told to wait a few days. Exxon called and they granted me 3k cl, much more gas than I planned on ever using.lol

Re: AMEX Platinum 100K Offer

Congrats.  I also got the offers for the 100k in the mail.

 

I applied for the personal Platinum delta and got instant approval.  Was so pumped by that, that I took out the ripped 100k offer from the trash and applied for that the same day, figured 1 pull, right?

 

Was listed as in process.

 

Called today to find out the status, the rep asked me to verify what I do, business name, and came back... "I have some good news for you, we are expediting you the card."  wow. I am shocked. =)

 

So two new Amex accounts.

 

I was recently approved for a personal quicksilver card that is not yet reporting, otherwise the only new accounts were from 6 months ago, and an express card from a month ago.  I was a gold card holder in 2006, and am currently an AU on wife's gold delta skymiles.
