AMEX Gold Recon

AMEX Gold Recon

Has anyone had experience with AMEX Gold recon?  Is it worth it?  I was TD last week.  I've had jetBlue AMEX for one month.  PIF first month.  High utilization.  Running about 2 times the limit through it each month.  Getting ready to PIF midway through the billing period.  I have mid six scores and high income.

Re: AMEX Gold Recon

Do you have any recent baddies? You might want to try giving Amex a little while to warm up to you. I'd say wait a couple more months.

Rumor has it that Amex supervisors were recently stripped over their powers to overturn a system denial.
Here we go again...

Re: AMEX Gold Recon

I was denied a CLI 2 months into having my Delta, but got approved for a Green today...wait until the 3 month mark at least.  Maybe you'll have better luck.  I have put 5K through my Delta in 3 months and PIF.

One baddie on Exp, four on Equ none on TU.  All from four years ago,  medical.  None since.  Several recent inquiries from home purchase, one auto and three cards including the AEMX.  Perfect history on all cards and autos.
