Re: AMEX Pulling TU

I got my TU pulled at 696, and got approved. I think they try to approve you when they pull TU...

I.e. "borderline approval"

Re: AMEX Pulling TU

Well, they pulled all three for me, but approval was based on TU. I don't even really think my 696 TU FICO was higher than my others at all. My exp would have been highest.

Very similar situation.  Verified triple-pull, landed on TU @ 680.  I see it as trading INQ's for a backdated TL.

Re: AMEX Pulling TU

They pulled all 3 for me and I was still declined.  My TU score was 707 - I have a lot of inq's on TU ( 6 GE Cards last year) and if they were 'trying' to approve me I'm sure that was the death nail.  

 

Guess I was hoping the EXP would be good enough but I will wait until the fall and try them again.

Nope, they just pulled TU and said the score was too low
