Re: amex what gives?

I got Zync and Costco and didn't get a score with either. They are only required to give you a FICO if they're giving you less than their best terms (interest rate). All Costco Amex have the same interest rate, so there are no "less than best" terms. And charges don't have interest rates because they're PIF.


I also just got Citibank Plat and didn't get a score. But I did get their lowest interest rate.


So, it seems that you only get your FICO if it's a card with an interest rate and they're giving a rate that is higher than their lowest available.
