oops - I did it again - Amex TE instant Approval

Do not know the CL, but it was an instant approval. I really wanted to maximize the backdating, and figured at worst it would be a denial/SP. If it doesn't come from Amazon, then it either comes from Aldi's or Costco, and Aldi's has neither (nor accepts) CC's or a gas station. So welcome to the Wallet Amex Costco TE! Photobucket

4/4 - for w/e reason, my Zync isn't showing.

 

Maybe they fall-off after 4 months?

Re: oops - I did it again - Amex TE instant Approval

Congrats!  Amex has shown us both some love today Smiley Happy  I just called the backdoor number listed on the main page to get my CL/APR.. If you want to know now, I'd give them a call.  The # is 1-800-567-1083.

 

Enjoy the TE - my mom has it and likes it a lot.

800+ across all three (via FAKOs) has been achieved! Current goal - Get down to 6 cards in total - sitting with 8 currently.

To nervous to call.  I'll just wait until that card arrives and I register it online.

 

At least I know they were generous in my 3x on Sunday, so even if they start me out with a similar CL as my delta gold, in 61 days, I'll be ok.

Don't be nervous!  The worst part (app'ing) is done already Smiley Happy  What was your initial Delta limit?  I was approved with a low limit ($2k), but even the CSR on the phone said to call back in 60 days for an increase (which I plan to do, as well as 6 months after that).
