Re: Amex Platinum Approved!

Wait. You only get a SP if you're already a AMEX holder?

Re: Amex Platinum Approved!

Well I have heard 2 different things. SP for existing and then hp if approved. However some here have stated that they did not get the HP after approval. My guess and only guess could be those have or have had some kind of history beyond a year. I have nothing to back that up, just an assumption. I have only had the Delta for over a month. I had prequals for the Delta and PRG. But I was not thinking and apped for BCP the next day and got denied. I waited the 30 days plus a few more and cold apped the Platinum. I have also read that Amex doesn’t show preapproval for new accounts before 60 or 90 days. As usual YMMV.

Re: Amex Platinum Approved!

I’m dying for a cli on my Amex delta gold. Tried twice and was denied. I’ve had the card for about 6-7 months. I’m wondering when it will start growing. I think I will just pif this month and let it report at 0% for a while since putting a decent spend haven’t worked for me

Congrats on the approval

Re: Amex Platinum Approved!

Thanks, I got the Delta last month with a 1K sl and have run it up and pif 3 times. My 61 days is up next month around 7th or 8th. I want BCP and SPG then I will have all the cards I want from Amex. I feel the itch but I am gonna hold out for a few months. I want to put some serious spend on this Platinum and see if by the summer I can have one of the other revolvers. Waiting is tough, I feel like I pushed the envelope with this last card so I want to show them I can handle it. I have a lot of traveling coming up this summer so hopefully I can offset the AF pretty quick.
