Keep checking status. This has happened to me in the past but within a couple of hours, I was approved.

Re: Gunning for Amex today

Everything is positve since my derogs. Biggest limit now is 3500.00 from local CU and barclays, 2 -3k limits from usaa and discover. AAOA is relatively low at 1.3 years because I recently dumped my builders and replaced them with the cards metioned above.

Re: Gunning for Amex today

I was told that if they offer the 500 hard limit inever gets removed, fact? Not that it matters much to me since I mainly want the card to get my foot in the door.

Re: Gunning for Amex today

I don't thinks its impossible to get it removed, just really difficult. Ive seen where some people got it removed but alot of people that have had it for a year or more haven't had success so far with getting the hard limit removed. But goodluck i hope u get it! Smiley Happy
