AmEx question...

I applied online for an AmEx Zync card. The 60-second credit approval said I was denied, but it said "However you are approved for.." and it had the zync card with a low limit and a required monthly draft of the entire balance, which I am fine with. I clicked accept and it said my app was being sent for further review. An hour later it came back as denied.


I checked the post that has the backdoor numbers and the two for AmEx don't apply to me. I am annoyed because it denied me the Zync but said I was "approved" for this other one, only to turn around and be denied.


Is there a backdoor number I can call and ask for a reconsideration? I just want to get my foot in the door so I can have a year of on-time payments and then ask for something better. Any help is appreciated...

Call the "New Accounts" dept......




They can pull up your app and send it to another dept for further review.


Best of Luck!
