Re: AMEX ZYNC!

I believe you can change your packs monthly. Definitely work on the negs, try for removals. The 8 inquiries may be an issue.

Yea, I been itching to reapply ... 2 chargeoffs would fall off this december but I just couldn't wait.... maybe my chances of getting a freedom card is much higher, now that I have an Amex..... but i'll be gardening now for sure!!!! this baby is more than enough as a rebuilder

Re: AMEX ZYNC!

Congrats for being in w/Amex, however I am confused, you got an Amex Zync Charge card that has a hard limit?? I though all Amex cards were NPSL???

Super Contributor

Re: AMEX ZYNC!

If you don't qualify for NPSL with the zync, but you do qualify for their counter offer, you will be given the option of a $200 limit, or a $500 limit with autopay.

Re: AMEX ZYNC!

congrats on the card appd for mine 8/30 and got it a couple days ago. 

same 500 hard limit but whatever. got my foot in the door. (at least two prime cards this summer) 

 

backdating is say you get the card 9/12 that is your starting date. 

 

you apply in january of 14 (which is my plan) for another amex. you get approved. 

the way the report the tl as opened in january of 12 and not 14. 

so it helps your aaoa. 

 

edit: AMEX is the ONLY company that does this.
