I've posted this before but thought I would ask again: I had a Amex CO TL which after paying, was updated appropriately to "Paid". After, I was offered an Oasis cad which I gladly accepted in order to return to their good grace. I now have a new TL on my CRs listing the the opening date as the original "Member Since" date and is reporting with "Paid as agreed" for the past ~1 1/2 months yay! However, I still have the old PIF CO with Amex as well which of course, is a negative TL.
Those of you with an Oasis: does Amex automagically remove the the old TL leaving only the current account, did you GW for deletion, or does it simply hang around like old luggage for the full 7 years?
You guys are great ... thanks in advance!

Thanks - yes, I've seen those too but I haven't seen any with a new TL from the Oasis card only one TL from a PIF CO. I was just wondering what others had experienced when their Oasis began reporting. I figured, if it remains after about three months I will begin GW'ing the heck out of it but if usually falls off shortly after the new TL, I'll just twiddle my thumbs while I patiently wait

I've heard they're pretty good at GW's on active accounts. Glad it worked for you You mentioned receiving a CLI - is your card an Oasis? I didn't think they support CLIs for Oasis. Either way, I think I'll give it another month or two and begin GW'ing for deletion of the account. Meanwhile, I have several other GWs in transit for other accounts and am keeping my fingers crossed!

AMEX offered me an Oasis thru their collection arm but I didn't take them up on it. Mostly I thought it was a collection gimmick. I thought how could they offer me another card when I was 2 months late paying them so much money. That was before I found this board - I didn't even know what Oasis was and I did not go for it.
I was so embarrassed to find myself in that mess.
Then I started slowly first with a Corporate card to get back in the door and got approved over time got 4 others. Now I have more credit with them again then I would ever use. The best cards with nice credit lines. All it took was paying them back, throwing yourself on the AMEX sword and time.
