Congrats on your offers!!    Would you mind telling me where is that section located? I've been trying to figure out how can see if I'm prequalfied for another card but have not been able to find where to check.  Is it a feature on the site that only appears if you have offers?

It normally appears on your home page, as a banner, above your current card's image and information.  In my experience, if you have a charge card, it's normally a charge card upgrade offer that appears above it (i.e.. gold to platinum or green to gold/platinum), for CCs, it may say Blue to Blue Cash Preferred.  

 

 


Current:
TU (5/14/14): 796 (Inquiries; 8/23/13)
EQ (3/23/14): 791 (Inquiries: 8/23/13)
EX (9/24/13): 780 (Inquiries: 7/2/12; 11/20/12; 7/30/13; 8/23/13)

Goals: No new inquiries for 2014, 800 for all CRs by 12/31/14

TeeandDee,
If you are interested in another AMEX product, just apply for it. Since it is only a soft pull application (until you get approved) you won't be getting a hardpull if you get denied. I could never find anywhere on the sites if I prequalified for additional offers, but app'd anyway to the cards I wanted and got approved for them both.

In my wallet: Amex PRG & Zync, Amex BCE (19.2k), Chase Freedom (5k), PSECU Visa/PSL (20k)
Current Scores: Equifax: 738 (Fako) TransUnion: 721 (Fico) Experian: 717 (Fico)

Thanks for the info.  I have a ways to go before I will be apping for a new AMEX because I haven't had my Zync even six months yet.  My plan is to wait for a year, unless offers appear on the website. Then I may go for it earlier...lol :smileyhappy:
