Re: Surprise Amex approval...what was your fico,

Your CL is probably higher than you think. I don't believe AMEX approves limits that low...lol. CONGRATS on the approval but why did you apply early anyway? From my understanding, you already have an AMEX card. You could have applied in 2017 and still would have gotten backdated lol.

The truth is out there...

Re: Surprise Amex approval...

Thankseveryone!

 

Does anyone with this card know how the setup with HHonors membership works? On the application it asked me if I was already a HHonors member and I selected "no".  Does this mean AMEX will set an account up for me, or maybe give me some directions on how to create one and merge it w/my card?
