Should I Recon AMEX?

Hey Ya'll - I apped for the new AMEX Card Cash Magnet as it gave me the pre-approved message when I logged in. I am new to AMEX and got this denial message:

 

"Dear Mr _______,

Im wondering if they will reconsider this due to that being the only reason for denial or if I should just wait longer? How much longer should I even wait if so?

 

Thanks for your help!

Re: Should I Recon AMEX?

AMEX isn't known for reconsiderations.   Very rare, if any, are overturned.   For the reason(s) cited, AMEX doesn't feel comfortable extending any additional credit to you at ths time.  Hold off until you have established more history with them and then you can reapply again down the road.

 

If your signature reflects the most updated information, it appears your BCE has a low CL (more likely due to a thin/young profile).   What was the approval amount given on your Simply Cash business card?
