Approved for the Wells Fargo Propel AmEx

I have gone on my first little app spree since rebuilding my credit. In the last week I have gotten approved for Arival and SouthWest chase card. I really wanted to get an Amex as well and have an app pending for the green charge card. I couldn't take waiting anymore and thought I would app for one last card. I have a secured card with Wells Fargo so I decide to see what they had to offer. Immediately the propel Amex caught my eye. I decided to give it a shot. After what seamed like 20 minutes the wheel stopped spinning. Approved!!! It doesn't say a SL yet but It should show up on my online account soon. Does this mean I get a member date with Amex?

Congrats! It's not a true AMEX card. They just use AMEX for processing that card. Also AMEX no longer back dates member since date any longer.

Thank you! I'm not sure yet which CRA they pulled. I believe its EX but I will let you know as soon as I see an alert for the INQ.I was kinda half asleep when I applied lastnight and it didn't give much detail on the approval. I called this morning to check the SL and interest rate but was told their system was down and to give them a call back in an hour.

Thats what I figured. Oh well, one day I will get my hands on a true AmEx haha. Untill then this will do. When did they stop back dating member dates? I must have been in the garden for to long and missed that haha.

They stopped March 2015. 

 

If you have history with Amex/Centurion they will still reflect the "old" date on your physical card and when you log in to the website, but the actual date you open the account will be reflected on the credit bureau reports, not the 'back date'.  Smiley Sad

Congratulations on your approval. I recently did a product change from WF Propel 365 to the Propel card and got approved. I figured $45 a year is not worth it, so I downgraded to a no AF version. Which one did you get?

I just went for the no AF version. I figured the rewards werent great enough to justify the $45 a year. I have a secured card with WF as well,  now I can close that out. I'm pretty happy with Wells Fargo and am even considering switching my banking to them. My bank U.S. Bank just declined my application and when I called to recon the lady was pretty rude and said because I have two degros that I would never get a U.S. Bank credit card untill they fall off. I cant hold anything agienst them for their decsion but I'm probably going to close my secured card with them and move all of my accounts to Wells Fargo.

Also just found out I did get the balance transfer offer too! 0% for 15/mo and a 3% balance transfer charge. I may transfer over the only balance I carry from another card just to get some spending through it.
