I had the Zync since 10/2010, Approved for PRG and BCE same day with the same EX Fico. Scores are on the low end form high utilization because of student debt but I treated the Zync very well and it apparently paid off!

wow, nice.  Too bad others are going to see a sub 700 getting approved for this card and get excited and get denied.

EX-774 (Amex Fico) 8/12
EQ-725 (Fico) 1/12
TU-729 (Fico) 3/12
