I got the same email as well, but my question is, is this AmExs way of pre-approvals? I'm new the the AmEx family and love them so far, but I'm afraid of wasting an INQ if it's just some bogus email spam to all AmEx card owners. Should I apply?

Upon backdooring into my EX file Sunday, I noticed two "American Express 2" soft pulls on June 23 and 27.

 

American Express 2 is the puller for pre-approvals and promotions.  "American Express FR" is the dreaded financial review soft pull.

I got this too and it doesn't have the opt-out notice so I doubt it's a legit pre-approval so I'm staying away from apping. It sucks though because I'd love to have this card... :smileysad:

They sent me one and they only approved me for my first card in 9 yrs the other day (zync). Don't think it's a preapproval :smileywink:

I got one as well must be something they mass email out to their current card holders I think they should just say we are approved to apply less confusion that way

I agree on this. Why "muddy" the waters?

:smileysurprised:  Let's keep it civilized here! :smileyhappy:

 

Back on topic, I wish they would send me that offer because I'll be applying for the card this month.  I did see a thread on here from back in May, and it mentioned a $50 cash back offer through 7/31.  I tried the link though, and it said it was already expired.
