Re: When can i upgrade my Amex charge

DW apped and received a second card (Blue Cash) five months after apping for Zync. Her situation may be slightly different because she was an AU on two Amex tradelines when she apped for Zync, and three or four Amex trade lines when she apped for Blue Cash.

Re: When can i upgrade my Amex charge

I was approved for Zync in Dec last year, and then a month later for Amex Costco! My CL for Costco is not high compared to other folks on the site, but I will take the approval. Hoping to get a CL after establishing a good history with them. By the way both cards are jut now showing on my reports and backdated to 2005 when I was an AU on two of my husbands accounts.
My current scores: MyFico- EQ: 8/13- (648), 8/13- EX (637), Wally TU (666)

Prime cards in my wallet: Citi Thank You (1500), Amex TE (1200), Amex Zync.

Re: When can i upgrade my Amex charge

Just a word of warning about Amex upgrade that I "learned".  If you have multiple cards with them and the card you want to upgrade is not at/beyond the 13 months and another is they will upgrade that one. 

 

In my case I have Amex Green (work), Amex Platinum, HHonors Amex, Delta Amex.  I wanted to upgrade HHonors to HHonors Surpass.  Problem is I forgot I have only had the HHonors card for like 9 months.  Did the upgrade thing online and no problems.  Checked my account after requesting the upgrade and I have HHonors and HHonors Surpass and no more Delta.  Called right away and they reversed the entire thing... throw out my existing cards, throw out the new wrong cards and then use the new new cards.  They fixed it but the system is apparently designed to sub another card if the one you want to replace is not eligible.

Thanks for that info!  I would have found myself in the same situation as I have multiple AMEX accounts.  I was going to upgrade a (less than 12 month old) Delta Gold to a Delta Platinum for the bonus "upgrade" miles.

thanks for that great piece of info!!  I've never read that before and I guess it would confuse a few people (and some Amex CSRs)
