Shocked to find myself pre approved for an amex card today, i check their site a couple times and year and occasionally apply for a card. never have i had them pull my credit or show pre approved. so i decided to pull the trigger and to my shock they approved me for 15k @18.9%. not my best card by any means but i'm just happy to be back in with amex.
Back in 2011 Amex was IIB and i never thought they would approve me again so soon in amex's eyes.
Welcome to American Express Cash MagnetSM Card Membership! We're excited that you have chosen American Express again.
current scores across the board 720-730ish
Congrats on a nice approval and SL with a fairly recent burn good DP's for people that are in the same scenario
Congrats! Can you also list a few more data points for those that have burned Amex so they have a reference please?
How much were they burned for?
Bk 7 or 13?
If 7, did you pay them back?
I read an article about American Express trying to expand it's market and authority. Perhaps they are slowing getting rid of the blacklist.
Anyways, congrats on the approval!
Congratulations on your approval!! Massive SL!
Thank you for all the well wishes.
It was an BK7 filed in early 2011. roughly 5-6k IIB for Amex and i never did pay them back.
