Re: Is Amex Delta Skylines Card feasible with Bankruptcy?

I just called the 1-888-826-3471 # and spoke with someone. She said that if I have a BK, I would need to have it cleared before they look at it again. I told her that I know of people who have a BK still on their report who got the card. She then forwarded my app to her supervisor to look over. Suppose to expect a call back within 48 hours.

Re: Is Amex Delta Skylines Card feasible with Bankruptcy?

Well whoever got approved with the BK got lucky somehow. I reconned mine and my BK was in 1998 and was told they would be happy to approve me once the BK was not showing on my CR. So I need to wait until Oct 08 to apply again to have any real shot at getting an AMEX. the gentleman I spoke with however was extremely nice and pretty much said that was the only thing causing the issue :smileysad:

but in the mean time, I'll pretend everything is going to work out and when i get the call, he'll say I'm approved,. :smileysurprised:

Re: Is Amex Delta Skylines Card feasible with Bankruptcy?

my score is worthy, and so is my report minus the bk he said

I wouldn't give up on AMEX just yet... Try PFB. All they can do is say no again. :smileyhappy:

Re: Is Amex Delta Skylines Card feasible with Bankruptcy?

Hi all, i am new here but have been reading for awhile, I applied for the Delta and Hilton AMEX and was decline for both because of BK about 7 years ago, I called today and spoke with someone and he said that I was declined for BK period, I asked if there was anyone else i could speak with and he said no. My fico scores are around 700 and my file is clean since BK. Looks like they are not even approving on recon.

Re: Is Amex Delta Skylines Card feasible with Bankruptcy?

You are absolutely correct with reconn was told that bk was the reason they would not approve  Delta Skymile Amex. I was very disappointed i had been waiting for 2 weeks on a answer and finally after talking to several different nice people they gave me their final decision. I could not understand that because they gave me the Amex Gold Reward 2 years after my Bk, i guess that just slipped through the cracks:smileysurprised:
