Amex Soft Pulling EXP

So finally got my EXP report in the mail... and boy oh boy has Amex been SP'ing me.... they did not SP TU or EQ.... but they've SP'ed Exp about five or so times since account opening on Oct 1st. I also noticed that they SP'ed me once about two weeks before I actually applied and was approved for my BCE.... maybe that means they were planning to offer me credit anyway??

I also noticed that the SP entry says "Amex CIC".. and I know in the insurance business that CIC means Certified Insurance Counselor.. so perhaps the people making account review decisions are Insurance professionals?? Ahh, how I love insurance and Risk Mgmt!

 

HMMM.. either way... my util is actually a percent or two lower since my Discover with a $1k bal hasn't report yet and likely won't til my 61 day 3xcli for Amex becomes due!! haha!! I also received $12,000 in CLIs this month, but that likely won't report til after the 3xcli 61day mark either!

 

haha.. if Amex wants to play dirty, so can I ;-)

 

They want to watch me, then I will watch them watching me  ;-)

Re: Amex Soft Pulling EXP

Nothing out of ordinary. They are just being good businessman and watching their new accounts. I opened my accounts in Sept and they SP me on 10/8 and10/18. Nothing since then. I'm actually waiting for them to SP me so I can request my 61 day CLI. I can't do it until then as my Oct report had high UTIL that has since been PIF.

How does one find out if AMEX has been Soft Pulling them? I would like a full report myself.

 

Amex's SP's and FR is just the way they handle their business (I honestly can't blame them).

Amex BCE- $1,000
Discover IT- $1,500
Bank of America 1-2-3 Rewards-$1,000

Re: Amex Soft Pulling EXP

Order your EX full report. There are other ways and services that give them. Can't remember the full list.

Re: Amex Soft Pulling EXP

"AMEX CIC" is what it says if you have the credit secure thing subscription with them. Do you?

Re: Amex Soft Pulling EXP

Oh.. I do actually... so then is that not them pulling my report? lol

I had a few SP's that were just "Amex" without the CIC thing....

 

You have to order your full report from Exp.  If you've been denied credit based on an Exp Report or need to dispute anything, you can get it for free...

I always get reports for free LOL.. there is always some way to get it for free thanks to the CARD Act :-)

Re: Amex Soft Pulling EXP

No big deal. They can soft pull you to their heart's content, you are the only one who sees them anyway.
