Just got approved for Amex Gold. They pulled EX, current score sitting at 703 FICO8. Feels great to be back in with AmEx. I had defaulted on a Green charge card back in 2004. They denied me for a Delta card in August, but I decided to shoot my shot again, and was approved this time. It wasn't an instant approval, and I didn't have a pre-approval due to the fraud alert on my file, but as soon as I called the new accounts line, and they verified my identity I got the approval email before the rep could get back on the line to tell me I was approved.
I know that some have posted of getting additional cards with Amex without another hard pull. Do you need to wait to apply for the second card until a statement prints, or can I do it already? I want the SPG card as I stay with them a lot
I got approved for my 1st AMEX Delta and a week later approved for a AMEX HH card that showed pre-approved.
Congratulations on your approval!
Congrats on your Amex Gold Card approval! Yes, you can go for another Amex card now. Most likely just a SP.
congrats on the new card and very nice rebuild.
