AMEX Platinum Approved !!

I recently got a Zync from AMEX and just got a platinum pre-approval in the mail.

 

Are those pre-approvals pretty much a good indication that I can get approved?

 

Since I travel a lot, I could use the lounge facilities and the other platinum perks.

 

So Im wondering what kind of scores they look for. I was shocked to get a preapproval for a platinum.

Re: AMEX Platinum Score

How long have you had the Zync? I believe its a general consensus on here that all cards have mostly the same requirements and you simply pay for benefits in the form of the AF. If your on good terms with them, I would apply for it. If the pre approval didn't have a bonus you may want to Google around and see what the best offer is.

 

Good luck!

I have had the Zync for 1 week now and the bonus on the platinum says that In the next 3 months, I have to spend $1000 and I will get 25000 points.

You can ask Amex but most likely you have to wait for 12 months before you can do product upgrade due to the recent credit card regulation act.

Holy Cow, I was just approved for the Platinum.

 

I just called them and ask them some questions since I just got a Zync and she put me on hold and came back after 1  minute or so and said , Congratulations you have been approved for the Platinum.

 

I'm excited !!!

If you travel much, then this card if for you. The AF itself pays for the lounge access and benefits with the priority pass (over 600 lounges worldwide)

 

I just used the sales pitch of the agent on the phone lol but she was right.

Re: AMEX Platinum Score

Congrats on the approval!  I think given the appropiate spending patterns (ie; lots of regular travel spend) it makes sense, but for those of us who dont travel other than vacation its not worth the AF IMO.  Maybe in the future if I have to do a lot of traveling but for now iPR Gold makes more sense, still if you can make use of it, its definately one of the best!
