Getting Credit Score/Bureau After Approval

[ Edited ]

Hey people,

 

I wasnt sure where to put this but I need a clear answer. If anyone can help please do.

 

So i apped for an AMEX and Citi Diamond Preferred and was instantly approved for both.

 

Am I supposed to get a letter saying what bureau they pulled and what my credit score was? Because I didn't get anything for both of them.

 

I know you get it in a letter if you are denied, but I thought if you are approved too?

 

Any responses are appreciated, thanks!

You will only get a letter informing you of that information IF you did not receive the best terms; since you were actually approved for this card, that means you'll receive the bureau pulled, reasons for not receiving the best rate, and score, if they offered you a higher interest rate.

 

Some lenders are nice and will send you the letter anyways...but majority of the time, if they do not have to disclose it, they won't!

 

All the best, and congrats on your approvals :smileyhappy:

Since you got approved for the AMEX Green Charge Card there will not be any score information AFAIK.  Score disclosure is not part of your Cardmember Agreement.  This would apply mainly to AMEX revolvers in the event you did not receive the best terms when approved or if not approved for any AMEX product(s) altogether.
