Re: Too Soon for AMEX BCE?

I've heard of ppl doing 3 ways calls with their bank and Amex. 

 

@OP you might wanna try that instead.  See if they will do that

Re: Too Soon for AMEX BCE?

Apparently Bank of America does not allow 3 way calls with the client....and my other bank is still attached to my old address.

 

I am going to try to fax information from my work tomorrow. According to the woman I spoke to, they start processing the fax within 24-48 hours and then processing is complete within 24 hours of that. 

 

I just think giving my debit card number to someone over the phone is kind of weird.

Re: Too Soon for AMEX BCE?

I was approved for BCP!! I got a $3000  CL. Asked if I could get the card sooner and he said the APR is not yet decided so he cannot expedite...was hoping to use it for gas over my Thanksgiving trip but I am thinking it won't be here in time. Oh well, I was approved! 

 

Thanks for all the advice and suggestions everyone!

 

I will also make sure to update again when I see if they only pulled one report or all three to give anyone who is thinking of applying an idea of if I was borderline.

I just got the letter in the mail today and they pulled Experian. My score when they pulled was a 742, so a bit higher than my previous Equifax pulls.
