Re: Amex softs

I think AMEX is almost exclusively Experian.  That is all I have ever seen.

Re: Amex softs

It is EX for me and I do not even have an account with them. They have softed me four times this year, twice for pre-approved crap (one of which I applied for and was declined, I did not take the bait on trap two) and twice for an Account Review. (see my seperate thread: AMEX has mental probs).

 

I think I know what song plays in the building at AMEX HQ... It's by the Black Eyed Peas. The original version too, not the watered down "lets get it started". :smileywink:

Re: Amex softs

I get softs on EX each and every month from Amex and it actally says Amex Account Review. I think it's all automatic and if Amex computer picks up on something you get flagged for AA. That said, Amex is subprime which all CC companies seem to be these days.
