Re: AMEX question

ZYNC won't come with a credit score since you have no interest rate on your term.

Re: AMEX question

I don't think you get one with charge cards. 

 

A) You were accepted first of all (so no score there) 

 

B) With a charge card everyone gets the same terms, since there is no APR and you always PIF (You only get a score when approved if you don't get the best terms)

I couldn't resist the itch so I applied.... And now I'm in the garden mode since a collection from a 5 yr old charged off account popped up on my TU and EQ.. Am glad it didn't show up on my EX(yet) or i would probably be in trouble with AMEX :smileylol:

Yep. I originally opened the card hoping to get BCE. That wasn't the case however, AMEX repeatedly denied me for high internal risk score on BCE. So I cancelled Zync right before the second AF.

 

On the side note however, I did get BCE yesterday. Here is how I did it,

 

Applied AMEX HHonors --> Approved for $2K @ 17.24% APR --> PC right after I received the card --> Now BCE, profit!

 

I went for HHonors router rather than BCE directly since HHonors did not offer intro APR, which made approval criteria much lower. Time to change my signature.
