American Express

Okay... So my creditkarma said that my score was good enough to get an AMEX card (751). So I done the little preapproval app. (where you put in your ssn and they say...) well it said I wasn't approved. This was not supposed to do a hard pull but it still shows up on my report! So I called them and asked why it shows as well as why I was denied. They said that my credit history wasn't strong enough (oldest age of account 15yrs) and that I would receive a letter with more detail. Well two months have passed and no "detail" has been in the mail. Should I send them a letter disputing the inquiry? Anyone has any luck with this?

Re: Hard Inquiry Pulls AMEX Address

Click on your CR and get the address from there. Just to make sure you have the right address since some companies may have multiple addresses for different departments / products.

You should also initiate the dispute with the credit bureaus simultaneously.
JPMorgan Palladium (100k), AmEx Platinum (NPSL), AmEx SPG (46k), AmEx BCP (42k), Chase Sapphire Preferred (47k), Citi Prestige (31k), Citi Thank You Preferred (27k), Citi Executive AAdvantage (25k), JPMorgan Ritz-Carlton (21k), Merrill+ (15k), US Bank Cash+ (22.5k), Wells Fargo (12k), Bloomingdale’s (12.4k), Chase Freedom (5k), Discover IT (5k).

Re: American Express

The 751 score you got is not a reliable indicator of where your credit situation is really at.

 

I think I'd simply move on, and not dispute the inquiry.

Re: American Express

My credit has no derogatory marks what so ever. No late payments, no charge offs, no collections for 15 years of history (when my credit began). It's not the fact that I was denied, it's the fact that it wasn't supposed to be a hard pull. I could have used that pull for something else.

Is that from a hard pull?

Re: American Express

 

Anytime that you apply for a credit card it will result in a hard pull, almost without exception.    There's really nothing to dispute, since you applied for a credit card.

 

Also I will move this to the credit cards forum.

Re: Hard Inquiry Pulls AMEX Address

I'm confused... you applied for credit (according to your other thread) and received an inq. Were you told that it would NOT be a HP? Not judging, just curious as to the dispute of a legit inq. Does that work?
