AMEX strategy for multiple revolvers

This message is 749 days old.  We'd prefer it if you'd start a new topic instead of replying to this one.

Recommended Posts

I currently have:

 

BCE

PRG

HHonors Surpass

 

I was wanting to upgrade my BCE to BCP.

 

You can upgrade from the BCE to the BCP (per an Amex rep I spoke to after opening the BCE) after having the BCE for a year with no pull.

 

I was thinking to max the situation I would transfer as much of the CL as I can to my Hilton card, instead of just transferring the CL directly to the BCP, and then call back and then close the BCE. Then go online and apply for the BCP and get a new CL and do a 2-for-1 and get the no fee Everyday card.

 

Anyone see any flaws in this or see a better way to max the benefits?

If you are going to apply for a BCP, move ALL of the CL from the card you are going to close to the Hilton card.

 

I don't believe you can do the 2 for 1 with 2 revolvers.

2 cards for 1 pull.

 

It is very common when it's charge + revolver and as shifter points out, it can happen with 2 revolvers.

I was thinking since I am an existing customer that I could probably get away with the 2-f-1 revolvers. I might call to app for the Everyday card just to make sure.

Is the donor more than a year old?

Oh you know what, it was opened in Feb so maybe that' s why.

It will be denied because the donor card is less than a year old.

So I did a credit reallocation by chat and they said I would get a decision in 7-10 days. Is this normal? Thought it would be instant.

It's really lame that a CSR can out in a request for something that has no chance of approval.

 

The last time I called in and made the request, the CSR was confident about the one-year timeframe and put in my request.

 

I asked her to double check before we hung up. After putting me on hold for a couple of minutes she came back and apologized... thirteen statements is the requirement.

 

I got a denial letter in the mail a week later.

One year of age won't cut it.

 

Donor card must have had 13 closed statements. I've lived this dream.

Only 2 more months for me!

Would this work the other way round, BCP to BCE? Or better yet, BCP to Everyday to park MR from PRG? Are we still talking pull here or a softie? If 13 months required?,?, I would presume the AF would be prorated in this scenario as well.

Most of that was answered above.

Yes, they will prorate the AF.

I thought so but FH was talking about no AF to AF BC. Just wanted to clear the air on the vis a vis.

My comments about 13 statements on the donor card are related to moving the credit line from one card to another.

 

As long as there is D* I don't plan to do a product change with Amex, which I think is the nature of your inquiry... I'd rather open a new card for the extra account age than PC an existing card.

 

I don't know their PC requirements.

      I have been thinking about this since learning about Amex backdating and how it helps AAofA.
       
      I have really two thoughts. One is I'm surprised that AMEX isn't pressured not to backdate new accounts since the rules say if you report (you don't have to report), you have to report accurately. I'm glad they do it, but they are kind of fudging there.
       
      But what I really don't get is why some of their competitors don't do the same thing. That would be a huge benefit to members and would draw lots of new business and wouldn't cost a dime.
       
      I am just surprised that AMEX seems to have a lock on this perk and is able to gain a competitive advantage over their peers.

      Happy New Year's to all my fellow CBers:
       
      Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season. I had a quick question, I have read threads on D* and in everything I got a little confused. With regards to an AU card, IF the AU had their OWN AMEX in say 1993 would they be able to use that as a D* date if added on as an AU? I know that it is said AU D* is dead, however, I kinda got turned around in my readings, I think that it is dead with regards to the MAIN CC Acct Holder having D* and the AU trying to get the SAME D* that really wasn't theirs. I am assuming that if the AU had a potential D* of 1993, that AMEX would honor it regardless of the date on the new acct, am I completely off here?
       
       
      Also, if AMEX did allow it, what might the impact be on the AU's AAOA. would it truly effect it? Or since it's only an AU card does it factor differently?
       
       
      As always, thanks for all your help and guidance, I have some success stories to share as soon as I get caught up with school.

      This is an academic question for me since I burned AMEX in my BK 7. That said, are people gaming carefully managing their AAOA by periodically opening and closing AMEX cards? Since you get D* for each AMEX card (open or closed), wouldn't it make sense to have as many of these reporting as possible -- open or closed? Obviously you don't want to pay a bunch of fees, but couldn't you churn the no AF products?
       
      Maybe this has been addressed before but I have been thinking about it. If people open and close various CC accounts regularly to churn bonus miles, why not churn Amices to heavily impact your AAofA?
    • By Aahz
      Other than D* and "prestige" what advantages are there to an AMEX Charge card, when compared to top-tier Visas or MasterCards, that justify AMEX's Annual Fees?
