Re: American Express Card

Interesting that the CSR told you this. We have always heard that AmEx uses its own in-house scoring system (this has also been stated by AmEx employees who have posted here.)

Re: American Express Card

That might be true because I remember when the c/a approved me after a lengthy explanation of my report said something like you pass our criteria I was shocked to hear that companies are using it but they do get the vantage because I bought it when I was on the phone with him and when I compared my page w/ details of score to his what we had was the same also was told by my banker at wf the other day that they are implementing vantage when getting credit from them except for mortgages they still pull fico for that

Re: American Express Card

ummm that's kinda how it is now.  Almost like wishing all merchants only accepted either Visa or Mastercard, but then there's also Discover, AMEX, etc

Re: American Express Card

your score should be above 700...if you travel abroad forget the Amex because no one takes it.

Re: American Express Card

Hi,

 

I just applied for the Zync card and received it in the mail last week. It's a charge card so there is no pre set limit per se but of course there's always a limit somewhere. My score was a 659 at the time. Hope this helps.

Re: American Express Card

IMO, AmEx is the best CCC out there, customer service is the absolute best, the perks are great, they are very generous with CLI's, they backdate, should I continue?


Starting Score: 583
Current Score: 3-03-12-EQ-802 TU-806 EX-798 (EQ Beacon 9: 804 Lender Pull 3-08-12) All FICO's
Goal Score: 800+ across all three
