Re: Amex Approval with 3 judgements and a chargeoff

Hi All

 

I applied and was approved for American Express PRG and gold Delta sky miles card on 7/4/13. My delta card was only for 1000.00 but hey its a start, I am assuming that my prg will be a NPSL, but won't know until it comes in the mail. I also applied for citi, chase,and discover, probably should have waited until AE reported. Once AE does report, will that open opportunities up with the other prime cards, such as those above? I have on my EXP credit report 1 pd tax lien, 2 pd judgements, 3 pd collections, and 3 pd chargeoffs. So I am very lucky to get my foot in the door. My income is 100,000+. 

 

Can someone give me tips on what  I can do to get the 3x limit at 60 days, I plan on using both, and paying off both in full each month. I am continuing to work on my utilization also.

 

on another note, over the past 3 years, I have probably applied for AE at least 6 times, always rejected, I also had 2 pd collections on the other small credit report(dont remember the name of company) that they pull from, but I am certain that they fell off this year. I heard if you had any badies on that report, that it was a definate no.

 

Just wanted to share my experience.

 

When does the 61 days start?  The day I was approved?   My deltaskymiles card is showing up on the website, It says "MEMBER SINCE 1984"   Will both my cards have that date, since I had an Americn Express Gold back then??????   Does this add time to the AAOA?????   Does American Express report to all three credit reporting agencies?????  my old card doesn't show on TU, but still showson Exp, and Equfax.

@traveler2005

Amex PRG, like all charge cards will have NPSL. baddies doesn't necessarily preclude you from approval. The severity and the age of the baddie will determine approval.
To answer your questions about req a CLI, I'll refer you to this thread.

I just checked my reports and discovered that Amex pulled from all three credit bureaus when I applied this week. I thought they only pulled from Experian?

I hate triple pulls. Cap One is infamous for doing that.

IMO, put some age between the paid CO, new accts before apping.

Re: Amex Approval with 3 judgements and a chargeoff

Hi

 

Just wanted to let you know that American Express pulled Experian only once, no other CRA pulls. So I got two accounts with one pull, is this common???

 

Once American Express reports, will this open up more opportunities with other companies such as chase, I would really like a freedom card, but can't seem to get my foot in the door. Any  idea's???
