Re: Apped for AMEX BCE

Use it sparingly for few months until you establish a track record with them. Amex is known do FR shutdown the access until you submit approval for the tax returns. Just play it safe for few months.

My CR is clean as of the 16th of February :smileyhappy:

Just had an evil cell phone collections hanging around that wasn't supposed to be there, but that actually got turned into a positive tradeline.

Other than that, positive payments for years.


I was wondering how your FICO® went up so much between January and February.  What a blessed 2012 you are enjoying!

Re: Apped for AMEX BCE

Just got it in the mail. Activated and ready to go.


This thing is flimsy-ish though. But that blue dot/square is mesmerizing.

Wouldn't have ever gotten this without a well-informed, knowledgeable site full of cheerleaders, gurus, and enablers!

Thank you all!
