Amex decline reasons. Does this mean I'm off their BL?

Recommended Posts

I received my denial letter from AMEX today and was curious about the reasons they have listed.

 

  • Number of trades (Experian)
  • Your FICO Score (680)
  • Our evaluation of the inquiries on your credit report based on the number, type, and recency. (Experian)
  • Too many new accounts. (Experian)

Unlike my Chase letter that specifically said I had a bad history with them, does this mean I'm off AMEX's BL? And I just need to clean my report up?

I'm pretty sure if you are on the BL that they will not even pull your report.If they pulled a hard on Experian you should be good to go when you get to the stage they will approve you.

Typically if you are on the AMEX BL, they won't even waste the $$ to pull credit.

Sweet! Now, I regret not pulling them first during my spree. Oh well, now I can work towards getting them in the near future.

How long has it been since you burned them?

 

Looking back on my records it was placed in collections in 4/2009. And last official Amex correspondence was in late 08.

 

I knew it wasn't that long ago which is why I didn't even think to apply for them first. Guess I was wrong.

You should add it to BobWang's Master Blacklist thread. The time you are on it could also be affected by the amount that was charged off (where higher $ = longer blacklist).
