In with Amex!!
Really really wanted this card or the BCE before I garden for the next 12-24 months. Experian score jumped to 659 today and knew it was my shot. Went to the pre-qual site and bam!! PRE-APPROVED! Couldn't believe it. 6 months ago scores were at 540, 6 collections removed, 4 charge-offs paid.
Went and applied... BOOM! Approved for $1000 SL. Profile is complete for now and off to the garden for the next 12-24 months. Really really wanted an airline card and to have one with Amex... ahh so nice.
Data - Experian 659 fico 8, 6 inquiries in 24 months, 13% Util, AAOA 2 years 9 months
Once I water this card for a while I'll go for one of the Amex big boys in a couple years.
Congrats on approval
Congratulations! I'm waiting for the day I can get my own AMEX card as well so posts like this give me hope!
