AMEX PRE-QUALIFY

Hey guys so looking at my scores do you think I have a good shot at the amex BCE? When I go to amex prequal site it says I only qualify for the Amex Green charge card, yet someone else on the board said no matches when he searched up and still got approved for a high SL!

 

Whats everyones experience with the prequals for AMEX?

Re: AMEX PRE-QUALIFY

 I have 5 lates on my report with Capital one which card and account is current and have not had a single late for the past 3 years, They recieved my goodwill letter today so crossing my fingers that capital one can forgive those 5 lates considering I have an auto loan, additional credit card with them and have been with them for 7 years.

 

What you guys think of my chances to join the amex family?

Re: AMEX PRE-QUALIFY

I just posted in the approvals forum earlier about my experience with them.
I did the prequalified thing came back prequalified for Blue Cash, Everyday, and the Green... I applied for Blue Cash instantly approved for 500 dollars right after applied for Eveyday card and was instantly approved for 500 dollars. My Experian was 663, I have 4 medical collections on report, and average age of accounts is about a year and 2 months plus a lot of inquires. It was also only 1 hard pull for both cards.

Re: AMEX PRE-QUALIFY

The prequalified things can be iffy... about a month ago my husband had been prequalified for the same 3 as me has a higher credit score then me, only one collection and when he applied he was denied I was shocked especially since they said he prequalified. I will share one of the reasons for denial was not using existing cards which I thought was weird. About a year ago we did the SCT thing and got him a pottery barn card, over stock and Victoria's Secret because it came up pre approved and no hard pull to apply to help build his credit, needless to say we never used them and that was one of the reasons for denial. Good Luck if you decide to app

Re: AMEX PRE-QUALIFY

If your Ex is 630, i think you might be pushing the envelope on approval. While some have been getting Amex lately with lower scores than normal, i would try to at least get your Ex up to 650 to have a better shot. If you go for it now, i wish you all the bestSmiley Happy
