Approved for AMEX Blue

[ Edited ]



I wanted to let everyone here know that I was approved for an AMEX Blue card with an 12K limit.  I applied for it over the phone and they pulled my EX report.  Woo hoo!   


I had an AMEX Optima card in the early 90's which was charged off.  I was young and irresponsible at the time.  I recently paid off the balance and I hope the new account will get backdated.

Re: Approved for AMEX Blue

A belated congrats!  How long after you paid off your old balance did you apply and were accepted?  Did you pay off your old balance by calling a CSR through AE's main number or a special collections number -- details, please!


And how are you liking your Amex Blue?!
