the saga continues so I get a letter in the mail the day after my wife get's her SPG card and it says because I had a card canceled by Amex in the past, a nice way of saying in a bankruptcy that they won't issue me a card, even as an authorized user . I call up and go to a main operator and not new accounts and they say that they will have a SPG card sent to me overnight sorry for the confusion this was Tues. I call today when I don't have my card and they tell me a card is not being sent because I have a canceled card by them. I tell them I have had a card for 5 years and have spent over 150k with no late payments or interest. He says I must have a corporate card and I go oh yeah and hang up the phone. I wonder how the hell I have a blue cash +with a 34k limit and it came from a solicitation from them in 2008 on the amex website it says I'm preapproved for a gold and green card and a few months ago I had a platinum pre approval. Has anybody else had this experience or know anybody that has???
this was from a post from last summer
Today I saw the new spg offer for 30k points and figured if I don't get approved no hard pull after a long 30 secs of wait after app says your approved for the SPG card they lowered my cash + and gave me a total credit limit on both cards of $45,300 my limit on the blue cash has been 34k, there is hope you just need to use there cards responsibly now I will have two credit cards with a since date of 1989 on my credit report you think that will offset my hard pull and I'm using my wife's points on her spg next month for dolphin hotel at disney so figure I'll sock another 30k away for a rainy day!
