Amex Oasis - Updates/Experiences

I was wondering if anyone would mind sharing interesting stories about thier experience with the Oasis program. Did your relationship with AMEX change when the economy tanked?

 

Thanks in advance.

Good question!

 

I'd also be interested in hearing if Oasis program cardholders experienced any of the AA that started with the current economic situation.

I'm confused.  Why would people who don't owe AmEx be blacklisted?

Good Question:   Are people who American Express dropped with accounts in good standing blacklisted?

 

They dropped me when I got behind on other cards, but I was not behind with them.   Many others have reported getting dropped with no negatives.

My understanding is that AmEx only blacklists for life two categories of people:

 

1.  Those who they believe have committed fraud; and / or

2.  Those who have caused AmEx a financial loss (i.e. BK or Chargeoff).

 

I believe -- but am not sure -- that those whose accounts were closed but ended up paying AmEx the entire debt may not be approved by AmEx for further credit for some period of time, but not for life.

  I guess there is hope for those of us who were dropped with accounts in good standing.   

 

  I might apply when my credit improves.

You can always get a bank-issued AmEx like those issued by USAA, BOA, Citibank or even PenFed.

I don't care that much about the AMEX network.    I really only want the "member since 1989"  back.
