AMEX pulled TU & EX...why?

I recently applied for a HHonors Amex Card. Long story short, DECLINED due to BK7 from 04'. I heard they don't tolerate BK until it falls off report but I thought maybe I'd slip through Smiley Happy 

 

Anyway, they pulled Experian and TransUnion score. Why would they do that? Any ideas?

They more than likely wanted to make a comparison amongst two of your credit reports in case of any discrepancies.

Don't feel too bad. When they rejected me in 2007 they pulled all 3.

It's OK, they are not as grand as they think they are!

 

Not as widely excepted... & a bit overrated!

Thanks everyone for the encouragement...i'm sure you're right. I guess since I know they're jerks and discriminating....it makes me want a card from them Smiley Happy  I know that probably sounds silly. I guess I'll have to wait it out...

lol, it's like being back in 7th grade, and the more a group rejects you, the more you want to belong to it! Smiley Wink

Hauling,

 

AMEX is more like having an abusive girlfriend.  The more she abuses you, the more you want to please her and you hope she changes.  But she won't.  She'll string you along, make you think everything is okay, then dump you when you're most vulnerable.........

And she'll ruin your chances with all the other girls "i.e, CCCs".

After 28 years I think of AMEX as more like a sometimes-annoying spouse (though I'll never say that to my wife of 18 yearsSmiley Very Happy )
