Fidelity AMEX

Does it have the same criteria for approval than regular AMEX cards?  Ch7 d/c 2010, did not include AMEX, never had an AMEX before.

 

I figured since i have a fidelilty 401k and investment account, and spend about $2k/month, i can use the 2% cash back and $2,500 spent equals a $50 deposit

 

Thanks in advanced

Re: Fidelity AMEX

It is underwritten by FIA/BofA not Centurion Bank(Amex).  So whatever BofA/FIA policies are regarding BK's.

Re: Fidelity AMEX

+1 its not issued by Amex just have the logo but the underwriting isn't too strict anyway. Unless you included BoA in your bankruptcy then you may have an issue

Re: Fidelity AMEX

Ummm, did not include BOA in BK but did get denied for BOA cash rewards card in June/2015, reason was BK.  Wonder if they'll tell me the same for the Fidelity card.
