Cool story. Congratulations! MN, you're back in the game.
COngrats on your approval and good luck in your journey !!!
Congrats OP! I burned AMEX in the late 90s and didn't get back in until 2017. Definitely be happy that they have given you another chance, and don't waste it! Meet the minimum spend, PIF, and you'll reap the benefits before you know it after your UTI has been updated. I wouldn't be surprised if in 30 days you might get a pre-approval message on the Gold Card and hopefully when you do app for it, it'll be an SP only as you're an established customer.
