congrats on the card....the hard limit will not ever be removed. Doubtful that you could get a revolver since you were counter-offered with the hard limit and wasn't approved for the NPSL.

Re: AMEX ZYNC!

I think I've heard of 2 or 3 people getting the hard limit removed, as opposed to tens if not a hundred counts of people having no luck getting it removed. After building up a history, it's worth trying for, but I wouldn't bet on it happening. Their policy on this might change in the future though and you may just get lucky. Smiley Very Happy

 

Enjoy your amex membership, I can't wait till I app for the zync. Smiley Very Happy

Re: AMEX ZYNC!

Use your Zync responsibly and shoot for a revolver in January. Let inquiries age, show good usage and payment, and work on any issues on your reports that may have hurt you that caused a hard limit to be placed.

possibly, some say that having the Zync or being "in" with AMEX for 6-12 months helps out and others say it doesn't make a difference. I don't think it hurts your chances!
