Amex

Hi all,
I've been reading post here for a while and just want to say great forum!! People are awesome and very helpful. Anyway about 13 years ago I had a Amex gold card and got into some trouble. I had a 12000ish bal and I settled for 8000 does Amex keep track of that? Or since its been so long maybe I have a chance? Any info would be helpful

Re: Amex

Years ago they had a loooooooooooong memory, and were completely unforgiving.  Of late, their memory is still long, but they seem to be willing to give some people a second chance.

YMMV some get back in some are reminded of that old debt...

Only way to tell if you are blacklisted is apply 

If they don't pull your CR your on the list....sorry

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Do you think 13 years is long enough?

Re: Amex

Not sure on that. I have freecreditreport.com my fako score was 697 yesterday. In the last 3 months I've had a new mortgage report, and 2 cc. My ex went up 13 points. And Eq went from 751 to 712. Tu 705 to 695
