American Express Financial Review?

[ Edited ]

I applied for the CSP and AMEX BCE this month and was approved for both. I then tried my luck and tried to get two Chase Ink business cards. I was declined for both (even after recon 3 times) and Chase also triple pulled for the two applications. They pulled Experian twice for the business applications, and pulled Equifax once and transunion once. 

 

So now Experian has a total of 17 inquires in 24 months, with include 4 hard pulls this month (3 from Chase, 1 from AMEX), and 8 in the last 12 months. 

 

I never carry a balance and always PIF, which I intend to do with the BCE once I activate it. 

 

 

Current overall util for all my credit cards is at 9% and have absolutely no derogatory info/late payments on my credit file.

 

What are the chances AMEX will do a fiancial review because of the 3 additional inquires fom Chase this month?

Based on this alone?  Zero.

 

If anything, if you score well on their various risk scores, inquiries and accounts with Chase will qualify you for more bonuses.

 

PS - If Amex values your spending and you're a long tenured cardmember, Chase on your CR will only benefit with your dealings with Amex via retention bonuses.

Right, for anything under $1,000 per month on their cards, unless it's fraud or ID concerns, Amex couldn't care less, so long as the cardmember has a pulse.

Thanks guys. I do expect to spend $1000 on the AMEX (to get the bonus statement credit) but that will probably be $400 first month and $600 in the second month.
