Apped for AMEX BCE

Well, decided I'd app for a BCE, just to see what happens.

My util might be a little high on the CR they will be looking at, but I was hoping my scores might mosey me right in.

 

I have no major purchases planned for the next year, so what the hell.

 

Got the dreaded "pending review" screen.

So much for a decision in 60 seconds.

 

So what's next? Do I call? Do I get an email?

Do I really have to wait 14 days?

I would call now and ask them if there is any information/questions you can answer and see what the holdup is. Hopefully it's something minor! Good luck!:smileywink:

Thank you.

And that'll do it for me. Two cards in two weeks is just way too much excitement for one year.

 

Should thank Revelate as well, he got my pistons turning with a post he made earlier in another thread.

Re: Apped for AMEX BCE

congrats. Though with a 740+ FICO I thought you would be rubber-stamped


Starting Score: 653 (11/1/2011 TransUnion)
Current Score: 719 (5/3/2012 TransUnion) 572 (3/21/2012 Equifax) 762 (4/14/12 VantageScore)
Goal Score: 700
