    No More Amex FICO?

    thanks - that works (and i actually saw the post above mine shortly after I clicked Submit... ha). I wonder how long until they take the "actual" FICO away from us...

    No More Amex FICO?

    ugh, now mine's switched over as well it appears. The "View your FICO score" link is gone, and there's instead a link reading "Free Credit Score and Report" that, when clicked, prompts me to sign up for the AmEx MyCredit Guide VantageSkore crap. As of yesterday morning, i was able to get my actual FICO through AmEx still.

    So what did you get in the mail today?

    I've been getting a ton of Chase and BoA balance transfer offers in the mail over the last couple of years. Also, weekly invitations to upgrade to the AmEx Platinum.
  5. why on earth would people actually pay money to watch that? More power to him, I guess

    My Early Mortgage Repayment Thread

    cv, this thread has been really helpful!! My wife and I are closing on our first house soon (hopefully in a couple weeks or so) and I may use some of these same tactics.

    Sucks that the 15% back at U.S. Supermarkets has a maximum of $10.

    Master 2018 Approvals and CLIs Thread

    Sent a secure message asking if I am eligible for a SP CLI on any of my accounts (Freedom $3k limit, Freedom $5k limit, Slate $3k limit, Amazon Prime $8.5k limit, Hyatt card $18k limit), and they responded saying no it would have to be a HP. I -would- give them the go-ahead, but we are in the midst of house-hunting and will probably be going for a mortgage in 2-3 months and I don't want any more HPs on my CR!!!

    Master 2018 Approvals and CLIs Thread

    They're extremely stingy, in my experience. I have two Chase Freedoms (one was automatically PC'ed about 9 years ago from a Starbucks Duetto card) and I've received a grand total of one auto-CLI among both of them combined. Pretty heavy use on both cards from 2007 - 2012 or so, not so much in the last 6 years. Have never bothered asking for a CLI myself, since I don't want a hard pull for those.
  12. yeah... I don't travel much anymore now (especially with two young kids), but my Amex Gold Card is my 4th-oldest (out of about 25 or so)... so I'd hate to get rid of it.
