Re: Pre Selected for a Amex......Please help

In October of last year, I went to the same pre-select site and was also offered the same cards, I went ahead with the full app and went with the green card instead of the gold and was approved.  I feel you have a shot for either card if nothing changed on your cr.  If you are interested with a American Express card and willing to take an inquiry hit if I was you I would do it.  For me American Express has treated me very will, I upgraded to the gold card a month later in November of last year, and in Febuary of this year was invited for the premier gold card with annual fee waived and 10,000 bonus points I app was approved, and was even given most of my annual fee back I paid on the green card.  Foremost they are considered a Prime Bank.  Good Luck in whatever you do.

The $450.00 is the fee for the platinum charge card.  The on-line app site could be screwing up today.  If I were you I would hold off and wait or you can call American Express and see what is going on if there is any problems and explain your situation.  I know when I app for the green card fee $95.00 never was given the option for the 1st year waived and never had $450.00 stated on my app.

No, the charge cards do not show a limit, although you can call American Express and they can tell you pretty much how much you can charge.  I feel with American Express they have to get to know your charges and payment patterns.  But this past weekend I had to purchase something over $1,000.00 so I called and spoke with a rep and told her that I needed to make a purchase of $1,500.00 and would it go through and the rep came back and told me yes.  I should have question for a higher limit just to see but for having an American Express charge card for 6 months I am okay with  this. So you would be able to find out how much you can charge.

The charge cards do not have credit limits.    They usually report highest balance.

When I tried the pre app site I was approved for the Green and Gold Rewards cards. This doesn't mean you would only be approved for those cards. I applied for Blue Cash and was approved. That was not on my pre app page. What are your scores new accounts yada yada?
