I have wondered if this was acceptable practice. I want to do something similar just cause, but i have a feeling they wont like it and or F/R will be forthcoming if approved.

Re: AMEX BC - When to re-apply?

[ Edited ]

I got the letter

 

Their reasons were:

 

-Average of your payment in relation to your balance on amex cards

-Assessment of monthly payments in relation to outstanding debt on credit card accounts

as indicated by experian

-Length of time being an amex customer too short.

 

I have had my amex card(s) for only one month, obviously paid in full on first statement. My uti on my visa is currently 9-10%

 

I am guessing the main reason is length of customer. Would appling in one month be wise? Or should I wait 3 or something to let more billing cycles close.

 

They have my FICO at 768

Well, I used to own Zync before. I apped BCE at sixth month and was denied due to high internal risk score, with factors being low FICO score (720) and too short of AMEX relationship.

 

Then I tried it again before my second AF on Zync, denied with the same reason as well (this time FICO is 736). Afterward I just cancelled Zync.

 

If one year wasn't enough for me, it will be longer for you.

I have a slightly lower TU score than you, somewhat thin file as I am only 22 but perfect payment history and a nice credit mix.

 

I had the ZYNC for 13 months, ran alot through it and obv PIF. I received two good offers for PRG first and then BCE. I was approved for both over the phone within a week or so of each other. I know my history with them put me over the edge for both.

Funny, AMEX must hate me, because my credit history is very similar to yours. And I did run a lot through my Zync card.
