Thanks a lot to all of you that helped me yesterday. I had to verify my address through my bank account and it was quick, with a three way call that AMEX set up with the bank. Experian didn't have my current address so, the way they verify is through my bank. Once my bank got on the line, they, the bank, asked for my phone number and account number which was verified. Then, AMEX asked the bank if my account was at least 30 days old and the bank said yes. No other information was asked of the bank and that was the end of the three way call and the AMEX customer service rep. said I was approved. I asked how much and was pleasantly surprised with the nice limit. As far as I can tell, AMEX pulled Experian only
You folks were very helpful in easing my concern about giving my bank account number over the phone. Thanks a lot girls and guys.

Told ya! Congrats.
Yes you did 09Lexie and I appreciate you helping me deal with this. Even though I thought I knew how most applications work, I was surprised on this one. Without you people helping and encouraging, I probably would have dropped the matter and not have what I consider a valuable card.
Thanks to everyone.

Why doesn't anyone app for the BCP?!
I'm single, so I don't buy that many groceries or really shop at dept. stores. Plus I hate going to the grocery store, so I get my groceries at Target.
