AMEX GOLD, GREEN, and ZYNC

[ Edited ]
Guys. Pre-Selected? I was shot down for CHASE freedom last month because of a few 30 day late reported 11, 12, 13, 14 months ago. Lender pull 701 EQ, my TU is 688. I wasn't considering a charge card but I do pay off in full every month, would LOVE an AMEX card. What do you guys think?

Hi ElMayimbe,

 

I think you should apply for whatever fits you in these 3 categories. Charge cards from AMEX are easier to get than their credit cards because they have to be paid in full.

 

 

PS: You should edit your post and take your name out... I dont think you're allowed full names in the forums due to it being personally identifiable information... but I could be wrong!

Thanks Credit_Repair. I'm worried though on another HP w/denial not sure if I should just wait more allowing more time to pass on the lates? I've heard charge cards are easier but I would hate to be turned down again.

AMEX almost always pulls Experian for charge cards ~ are the lates on your EX file identical to what you reported ?   You might need to wait a few more months for the lates to age since they are just under a year old.    

 

Have you tried sending a GW letter to the creditor asking them them to remove the late payments ?

Now that you mention it, my EX shows just one late in May 2011over my TU and EQ which show several lates most recently 11 months ago. Long story short, I got nowhere with Santander and the lates.

Just go for the Gold if you like rewards but if you just want a credit card then go for the Zync.

I'll get some itch-B-gone and wait. I would hate to burn an INQ, let me ask you guys this though, How long is enough to app again for a credit card i.e- freedom, sapphire, amex, etc.?

Re: AMEX GOLD, GREEN, and ZYNC

I'd go for the green. The gold is not much of an upgrade really and costs 30 bucks more per year.
