Re: American Express pre-approval not working for me

What does it do when you press the button?  Maybe I'm misunderstanding what I'm looking at.

It either soft pulls your report, or checks the most recent soft to see if you could qualify for anything.

Are they pre-approvals from the site? I get the following message:

 

"You are pre-selected for the following offers"

 

Do they offer pre-approvals?


Pre-approval and Pre-selected are the same things. And they mean the same, which is pretty much nothing lol.

 

i just like to play around with it

Re: American Express pre-approval not working for me

I don't have anything on my screen that says "Your Offers".  Is it "Browse our latest offers" or is that just for anybody?

If you click "cards" at the top of the home page and then click "personal cards" and then on the left hand side will be this:

 

Click on "view your special offers".

Re: American Express pre-approval not working for me

It doesn't seem to work for people who are already cardholders. It worked for me before I was approved, but now it juts asks me to log in and then brings me a page showing their card features.

Lithium: that's for anyone, or as Swamp intimates any non-cookie enabled member or non-member.

Though I think it worked for me post Zync activation, have to go try it at home

Re: American Express pre-approval not working for me

If you already have a card, it's not working for you because you're a cardholder.

 

I almost made a post yesterday thinking that the pre-approval site was taken down, but then I switched computers and realized that it was me having logged in once as a cardmember. Now it takes me to a site that shows "upgrades" that I'm not eligible for. Smiley Mad

Re: American Express pre-approval not working for me

So if you are a cardholder is there any way to check what you have been preapproved for? It asks me to log in to view personalized offers.  However, when I log in it takes me to all of their offers? I don't see anything special..
