Re: Backdoor Numbers

Hello my fellow myFICOians!

I'm wondering if anyone knows of the Chase number I would need to call to have them give me a better starting limit?

I was just approved this morning for a Chase Amazon prime card and my SL is much lower than I wanted.
I'm hoping I can call a number and have them reuse the credit report they pulled for the app, as to not initiate another HP.

Does anyone know if they can reuse the app report and give me a higher CL?

Thanks in advanced!

Apped for the Amex Platinum card and received the 14 day message. Called the backdoor number which was closed due to hours, got on chat, got a new backdoor number for new accounts and apps in progress that is staffed 24/7, was asked to verify phone number which I was not able to do becuase I'm out of the country, instead they called my bank with me on the line to verify my address through them, instant approval.


Wanted to share the number I called which is 24/7 and not listed on the back door numbers yet.



Amex apps in progress and new accounts 1-877-621-2639   open 24/7     Number rings straight to a customer service rep located in the US. 



Edit:  Called the number back, and yup, it changed. Now someone answers right away with "apply by phone." odd.
