did they do a credit check for the upgrade?
 
 


Not if Amex is offering you a "conversion" (upgrade). In this case, you keep the same account number and only the 4-digit security code and exp date (might) change.
 
If you initate a product upgrade (this is not the case during activation), Amex might very well hard you, and your new card will have a new account number. This can cause a hit to scores:
 
- new inq
- new account
- re-aging your file
Credit Cards:
Amex BCP 25K ~ Amex Clear 25K ~ Amex Platinum NPSL ~ Chase Freedom Visa 19.3K ~ CITI Dividend World Mastercard 20.3K ~ FIA Fidelity Investments Platinum Plus Visa 40K ~ First Hawaiian Bank Gold Visa 10K

Re: Upgraded my Amex Green to Gold Rewards Plus

I have all my bills (except mortgage and auto loan) on auto pay at Amex
 
I have carefully chosen which card to pay what bill based on rewards and billing date-

I've seen one of the Amex advertisements before with some sort of promotion if I pay my mortgage with my Green card.

I wish Wells Fargo would let me. I'm losing a substantial amount of points a month by using a check over a CC.
Here we go again...
