Amex Inq?

The other day I applied for an Amex Blue.  I got the processing notice from them, and was later denied.  However I just got an e-mail from Truecredit and I took an Inq on all three credit reports.  Has this happened to anyone else before with Amex?  I figured I was just taking one hit on Experian, and now I got all 3 Smiley Surprised(

I guess maybe you were borderline so they decided to pull the others. Sorry to hear that.
Here we go again...

That is strange. I never heard Amex pulling all 3 CR's. It is new and hearing first time. I know CapOne is normal doing all 3 CR pull.

Re: Amex Inq?

I was denied due to a recent CO (2006).  They said they used Experian in the e-mail they sent me, however TC says:

 

TU- 

New Inquiry 11/05/2008 AMEX

EX-

 

New Inquiry 11/06/2008 AMEX

 

EQ-

 

New Inquiry 11/06/2008 AMERICAN EXPRESS TRS CO, INC

 

 

Hmm..

The same thing happened to me about 2 weeks ago. I applied online and got a responce about 4 hours later that I was accepted.  They pulled all 3 CRs.

Sounds like they are getting very, very careful!!

The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid

Re: Amex Inq?

I applied for Costco Amex Biz card couple of days ago. I hope they dont pull all 3 CR's. I'll be pissed if they do that.
