AMEX Account Review.. thoughts and what to expect

[ Edited ]

So I've had my amex zync about 7-8 months and when I checked my USAA credit monitoring I saw this.

 

 

 

I've never used the check your spending limit, except the day I got the card.  Checked $1000 and it cleared ok, never touched it since then.

 

It says 10-27 and I used my card yesterday, does that mean they aren't freezing my account?

 

Am I looking to much into this?

 

My usage for the card was I believe 400ish - 800ish - 1000ish - 1400ish - 1000ish - 800ish - 500ish

 

What should I expect out of all this??

Re: AMEX Account Review.. thoughts and what to expect

I could be wrong so don't quote me, but if AMEX were doing a FINANCIAL REVIEW, your card would be frozen until the review is complete. Your screen is only showing an account review. That does not look like an FR to me. Amex would notify you for an FR.

It could just be that AMEX did a a soft pull to review your credit report to ensure there are no major changes (out of control UTIL, new derrogatories, etc.). It is the bank's perrogative to check these things. Citi checked my report recently too.

They may have also reviewed to see if they are going to send you any offers for other products.

+1

 

I have USAA monitoring, and I don't see softs. But I've read others say that they have them. This is the first proof (= copy/paste) that I've seen.

Re: AMEX Account Review.. thoughts and what to expect

I wasn't really concerned all the other AMEX soft pulls, just the one from "AMEX ACCOUNT REVIEW".  Nothing else bothered me about the other soft pulls

 

Too get to that list you:

 

1. Click dispute center on the left menu

2. Click Experian Online Dispute, which should open up a new page

3. Then click Check the recent requests for your credit history

 

If you need anymore help getting there just ask.

Oh, I see --you can see the full EX report (not all three.) Thanks, I was wondering where people were seeing this.

I am no expert, but I think "Account Review" and "Financial Review" may be two different things. As long as you can use your card, it's not the dreaded FR...

Re: AMEX Account Review.. thoughts and what to expect

We have the very same thing posted on our USAA CMS report and we don't, currently, even have an account with Amex.  We DO have a USAA Amex card, not sure if that makes any difference. 

 

Thank you for teaching me about this area of the USAA CMS report that I had never ventured into before!
