Re: AMEX Zync

what are my realistic chances of getting in with amex with what ive got going on?


661 EQ Fico

664 TU True credit =/

774 Experian Fako


Ive got a 6 year old repo with a 0 balance, 1 baddie on EQ for $388 for unpaid med debt, 2 student loans with some lates - last one being 6 months ago.


Orchard 400.00

Cap1 500.00 (new account opened in april)

FP 450.00


all my credit cards are at 0 balance with perfect payment history and i pif every time.


what  really need is a card with a decent credit limit or something reputable that i can start growing with. after june i should have 3 inq on TU, 2 on EQ and 2 on experian. what are my chances of being approved with amex right now for a zync and what other cards should i try for? I want to app 1 more time and then i plan to garden until 2013 when my last baddie (repo) falls off.

Re: AMEX Zync

Hard to guess what they really look for but they just approved me so I'll think you have a good shot. I really thought my scores would kill it. I had an Amex back in 92 and saw the backdating thread. Thought to give it a shot and see if I could open a line with them to take advantage of that. The card was approved, now just have to see if I can get them to backdate it.


My EQ was 619 as of 6/7/11. My TU was 634 as of 6/7/11 also. Not sure what it is today as between then and now I paid off a third car loan.


Both reports show an active collection for an old Sprint account that comes and goes.

A paid collection on a gas bill from 5 years ago.

A paid state tax lien from 1.5 years ago. (came outta nowhere, bam. Seriously. $120...)


Have no lates in three years.


Home Depot w/ 3500CL, 0 bal

Cap1 w/ 750CL, 0 bal

Elan Visa w/ 6000CL, PIF every month

Two car loans.

Been at the same job for 14, same home for 8

Starting Score: 594 (Dec 10, 2010)
Score: 758 (March, 2013
Goal Score: 730 on all (by end of 2012)
