American Express score with approval?

I've read several times in the forums about members applying for an American Express card and getting an Experian FICO score with their approval letter.  I was approved instantly for a Zync in October, but don't remember seeing my Experian score in any of the documents I received from American Express.  Does anyone know where I can find that?  I'd like to know what my true Experian score is.

 

Thanks in advance. :smileyhappy:


Starting Score: EQ 678 (8/10/11) -- TU 678 (8/10/11) -- EX Fako 639 (9/7/11)
Current Score: EQ 685 -- TU 686 -- EX 702 (lender pull)
Goal Score: At least 720 across the board by June 2012

Hmm.  I typed in my info and it was the same original message I received when I was approved - "Contratulations, you're approved. Your card will arrive in 7-10 days," etc.  No score.  I wonder if it's a regional thing?

Ah, I see.  Thanks, dalebb!  I sure would love to know my true Experian score though. :smileytongue:  It must be pretty decent since Amex, Chase, and Citi approved me after Experian pulls.

You only get the score with a negative action.  Whether it's a denial or less than top tier interest rates.
