I'm hoping someone from AMEX is reading these boards...they definitely need to know how many good customer they're losing as a result of Homeland Security-style policies.

what makes it even more egregious is that it appears that they are pulling this stunt on just about everyone who opened an account recently.



Not sure if this is exactly true. I've been using both of my cards. (Activated both less than 2 months ago) and haven't gotten one - yet. But, i'll probably do the same as you and tell them to take a hike if they attempt it.

Dog,
 
you had to pay the annual fee? It wasn't waived? Could this help us understand who gets a F/R? I know there are some possibilities like applying for more than one card and asking for a CLI, etc., but I wasn't required to pay the annual fee.  I recently put in for a $3000 balance transfer and it was approved.  I plan to pay it off almost immediately with my bonus at the end of the month.  Well, I suppose if I get one after the transfer goes through, it's not a big deal because the money is already on their card!

Re: you wanna f/r me? go bl*w yourself, amex.

i accidentally applied for the platinum skymiles (which doesnt waive the first year's 135 buck fee) instead of the gold skymiles (which does waive).  the hilton and the blue cash did not have a fee for the first year....the blue cash may have not had a fee at all, not sure. 
 
like i said, i didnt even use the card.  i did ask for a cli on the delta and the hilton, which were denied, but did not ask for one on the blue cash, since it was 5k on approval. 
 
i can tell you this...i will never have an american express card.  ever.  and, yes, i AM that stubborn.
