I cannot find a reason why i am still stuck with a $500 limit after having the card for 2 years and pushing over 30k in spending without a single late payment, In that same time i have been approved for both a Chase Freedom and a Discover Card while also having the limit on my Capital One increased twice during that time.

What progress have i had with amex? Nothing, despite it being my oldest card and my most heavily used card i still have not had it grow with me, I have been using my Discover and Freedom and have been enjoying the 5% rotating categories, what does amex do? discontinue all of the packs on the zync and leaving it with the most basic of rewards possible, the one point per dollar is actually less then 1% if you redeem it for a gift card, and that is all that the zync offers you at this point.

I think what u and me can do is apply for Gold as current card holders it will only be a soft inquiry if we get rejected and hard if we r approved. I dont think we have anything to lose

Definitely nothing to loose since it is a soft pull, and at least we get our EX Fico.

I have not tried applying for a revolver but i am guessing it would be even more difficult, perhaps i should try it next time.
