Re: Backdoor Numbers

For American Express, I had success using 877-621-2639.  I checked my account last night and checked a few cards and saw the "pre-approval".  I was interested in the Cash Magnet card, app'd and got the 10-14 day message (their pre-approvals need some work lol). I tried the number listed in the main thread but had a hard time getting to a human (could have been my fault).  Called the above number, selected "status of application" and when they started asking for info I said "customer service", was connected to a really nice guy who approved the card for $7200 and said that I would be eligible for an increase "soon".
