Amex approved Zync & BCE one Hard Pull

[ Edited ]

 

Thanks to everyone on this site I have had great success. 

Hopefully the following will be of some help to others as well.

 

It had been years since I had a credit card and was rebuilding from scratch starting in January of 2012.

At the time of application I had eight months of good credit with Cap1 secured Platinum card with a $2100 credit limit.

I kept the usage below 10% and paid in full every month.

I had no loans or Mortgage payments.

 

I applied for the Amex Zync and their BCE at the same time and was approved for the two cards with just one Hard Pull .

 

The Zync was immediate approval and the BCE said i would be notified in 10 to 14 days.

When I checked the next day on Amex Site i was approved for the BCE as well.

Amex backdated my cards to 1983. The CSR for Amex was great .

 

 

At the time of Amex application:

My Fico score from Experian as reported by Amex was 730

My Fico score from this Site were TU 725 & EQ 745

Amex Zync NPSL 9/12, Amex CostcoTrue Earnings $10K 9/12
Amex BCE $3K 9/12 (Amex Back Dated to 1983)
Chase Sapphire Preferred $17K 11/12, Chase Freedom $7K 11/12
Discover More $750 11/12
CapitalOne Platinum Secured Card 2K 2/12 (Closed 12/12)
FICO: EQ = 804 EX = 802(Amex) TU = 801(Discover)

Re: Amex approved Zync & BCE one Hard Pull

Major congrats on the 1 pull double score!  (Not everyone gets that even when apping the same day!).

 

Wish I could have done it, but I had to wait for my Blue after several months with Zync (sigh), so 1 HP each.  Still happy I got them either way  :smileyhappy:

Thanks,

Seeing how I had zero credit last December I feel I have come a long way back.

Two 29 year old accounts figured into your AAofA? I think you will like that. With AMEX the CL will come. Just treat them with respect.
