Thank you! But does anyone know the answer to my above questions ? I have only gotten this far with the help of the myFico community. Started off with a 487 Score!


- How do I know my limit? I know its a Charge card but there still has to be a limit.After you get your card call in some CSR will tell you were the limit is set ....

-Also, does this mean I can apply for the costco card again without taking a Hard Pull on my credit report? And yes do it right now to reduce the likely hood of a 2nd HP

YMMV


Very rarely does AMEX CSRs give internal limit info out. I would use the check spending ability button online.

Re: JUST GOT APPROVED!!! AMEX GREEN!!

There's a tool on the amex webpage, called something like "will my charges be approved?". You can plug a number in, and see if it says yes or no. You can also all and ask, or if you're going to have a bunch of expenses (reimbursed business travel, etc) tell them. The number will depend on your spending history, your reported income, etc.

When you call with new card they tend to think you maybe getting ready to make a large purchase and tell you the limit...all CSR don't like to expose the limit set Lol

And no they won't take back your approval....LOL
