Re: 2 out of 3; AMEX Reconning Possible?

Thanks guys. Smiley Happy. Yeah, I'm definitely in the garden after this, I'm pretty sure I got lucky w/ these AMEX approvals with just a 7mo history. My AAoA is even lower.

 

@myjourney- Happen to have the number bro? Lol.

I tried calling but the CSR that picked up , seems like he didn't want to spill the beans, he told me everything will come in the mail, BLAH BLAH. So, I'm like okay fine.

First, congrats on the approval!

 

Second, yeah call back. I just got approved for the BCE (all I had was a Gold card at the time, no actual credit cards), and the guy that I talked to when I called in to see if I was approved wouldn't tell me my limit when I asked. I called the new accounts dept. back in later in the day and the guy told me I had a $2000 CL. This then led me to apply for the Amazon Visa cause I was feeling confident, and got instant approval...... with a $400 CL, BIG MONEY!! Smiley Sad


My Wallet:
AMEX Gold: NPSL 8/2011
AMEX BCE: $2k 3/2013
Amazon Visa: $400 3/2013
