Re: OLD AMEX GOLD

Hi

DW had a Amex Blue Student card when she was in her Masters in 2003
becoz of some financial probs she missed couple of payments and account was closed & PIF.

Can we open it(old)/new cc without losing old history. It went for Collection but DW paid to Amex not to the Collection agency.

***We have the old Amex CC with us now.****

Thanks

Re: OLD AMEX GOLD

HI-ALL - remember you are not opening up your old account, You must either have a current account open or open a net new account with Amex. Then if they do not find the history in their system you would need to fax/mail them copies of the actual CC for verification. They will then edit you account history and if necessary offer to send out an updated card with the newly edited Member since date on it.

hi scoreup

so do we need to open an account with them before this process takes place or can I talk to them to open a new cc with old cc history ?

Thanks

You open a new account. You will not have the "old history" per se, but your new card will report as though it had been opened the year your old card was opened and with a clean history.

Re: OLD AMEX GOLD

cheddar (or anyone else), does this mean that even if the old card got ugly at some point, as long as you paid it off entirely, you can get the history with a new card?

I'm surprised to hear this, because on the Oasis threads, I thought I had read that if you owed them, you could sneak back in via Oasis, but if you had PIF'd, they wouldn't bother to take you back, since there was nothing in it for them, and you were blacklisted.

Re: OLD AMEX GOLD

Hello Hauling
 
 
As i did understand I was a member at 1984 Green Amex  wnt bad but paid
 
I applied last month to get new Green Amex Recieved it, I cleaning out a tin box found my old
 
statements called Amex they told me that was not enough, I new card was in my junk drawer
 
Fliped box seen card , called and i faxed them a copy, now it says on the webpages of my account
 
member since 1984, and they will give me the history since 1984 on th CRA, for my new opld account
 
they did not give me the old number, but they will give me the history,
 
It will be about 7 to 10 days when they update, i will keep you guys posted when reported
 
 
I guess they do give u the history even if it did get ugly at one piont,  by the way im happy
 
my Green Amex now will say member since 1984,
 
But my only problem is i still have that pile of junk on the floor, i have to put the drawer away, lol help

I don't think they blacklist for life as long as your old bad account has been PIF.  Cardholders who have PIF their old bad accounts are not eligible for Oasis, but they are not necessarily precluded from getting another Amex card at some point in the future.

Re: OLD AMEX GOLD

Yes iI did go bad on them but paid them
 
never applied or ever thought of appliing with Amex cuase i thought they hated me
 
last year I applied for the Delta and HHonors, always PIF,
 
Last month I Applied for the Green Amex Charge, afterwords i found my old statements, then the card
 
After reading a few post about Amex giving history from the first member thats when i called and was very happy
 
still no alerts from the CRA about the accounts being posted
 
but will let you all know when i gets alerts
 
thank you all
