Re: amex fr problem

Why are you so worried about an FR? Despite some noise on the forums sometimes, they are not all that common....

Smiley Very Happy Don't worry about it bro. I started getting nervous when I was reading some of the propaganda on here, but I noticed that most people ranting about it have not even had an FR. In fact, some have not even had an AMEX...lol.

Re: amex fr problem

Rules of thumb with AMEX to avoid FR:

 

-PIF. Even on revolvers. AMEX hates balances that go over a period of time.

-Never overstate your income on an app. It will haunt you in the long run. If you think AMEX does not have people analyzing your spending habits think again.

-Keep your file clean. AMEX is notorious for SP'ing constantly on someone's file. They keep a close eye on you.

 

 

You keep these bullets in mind you'll avoid an FR. Simple as that.

Re: amex fr problem

If you're so worried about being FR'd then why get an AMEX.

FYI, if you are going to run a business with it then I would get a business card from them or they will catch on and shut you down.
