Re: Amex denied, called for RECON and...

I dont know if Costco Amex is the hardest to get. I just said forget it and went for it. I know my ReCON words sound like excuses but I do have an AMEX Green through Corp that does not report on my credit. Wanted to see them take that into consideration. Oh well, it is what it is.

Re: Amex denied, called for RECON and...

I applied for AMEX also and was declined. My letter stated it was because I had "a delinquency and balances are too high on revolving accounts". Called for recon- they stated that they are no longer approving for anyone with delinquencies on their credit reports regardless of scores. Then invited me to call back when that happens and reapply.

Re: Amex denied, called for RECON and...

I have about 12 baddies and not all of them paid and they had no problem approving a Delta.  EX 641 at the time in February.  I would go that route and then at 11 months try to product change to avoid AF and give some good AMEX history.
FICO's: TU: 682 EX: 688 EQ: Unknown

In my wallet (strikethough are getting the axe soon): Amex Rewards Plus Gold | BECU: 10,000 | AlaskaUSA FCU: 6,900 | Citi Forward 6,500 | BOA Travel Rewards: 5,000 | US Bank Cash+: 5,000 | Merrick: 4,200 | Chase Freedom: 3,500 | Juniper: 3,100 | Household: 2,450 | Best Buy Reward Zone: 2,000 | Cap1: 1,500 | Cap1: 750 | Bailey's Furniture: 3,100 | Lowes: 4,500 | Care Credit: 2,000 | Zales: 1,400 | Kohls: 400 | Sam's: 5,200 | Walmart: 1,100 | Discover More: 1,000

Re: Amex denied, called for RECON and...

Yea... As soon as the 2 baddies that are unpaid are removed from my report, Im calling back that day. Its only only Experian with me. I swear they love EX. Sort of downt want to mess with the big bad CRA that I knocked off TU and EQ. I am scared they are gonna find some loop hole, kinda like how they re aged my EX account, and report again on EQ and TU.

I also seen people getting approved for the Delta Amex with worse stats than me. Granted you never know somebodys complete history but I might have to go for this one in the near future. Want so INQ's to fall off. Desperately need a higher CL. Might have to go the NFCU route but I am a Navy brat and havent spoke to my dad in double digit years...and im only in my mid twenties. My Util should update to about 5% from 50-60 around the first. Hopefully I see some nice increases. I wanna put AMEX in a choke hold right now. hahahaha

Re: Amex denied, called for RECON and...

Um, that's because Delta is the easiest AmEx to get and Cosco is the hardest. Do a search (at the top of the page) and see how many people with low scores got approved for them and then compare.

Comparing Delta to Cosco is like comparing a sub-prime to a prime -- not the same. They do not have the same score/CF qualifications.
If at first you don't succeed... hang up and try again!!

I appreciate it, good to know that Delta is the easiest. Looking through all these pages is a time warp.
