Wow...it actually happend...Amex or Bust was approved by Amex

Still kind of in shock the re-build has gotten to this point. I finally got in the door with Amex via the Delta Gold card. The two previous rebuilds never got this far and a starting limit of 4,000 is a complete stunner. Completely expected the normal 1,000.00 be happy we let in you the club limit.  I have a discover and QS1 with 1500.00 limits. NFCU More RewardsAmex with 1,000.00 limit but that hasn't reported yet. 

 

Some data points

EX was 691 ( my score jumped about 60 points after paying a CO in full)

I was denied at the end of March with EX in 630s

The prequal site did not match me to anything  so it possible to be approved when prequal site has nothing

 

I was approved by Penfed for a new car loan and denied the PCR card in the same time frame.

I was approved for an AmEx BCE card back in 2017 without a pre-approval. 👍🏼
