American Express "Make Your Move" Program: How Does It Work?

Postby Topher » Mon Mar 11, 2013 10:28 pm

Hello all, new to this site but have been reading through it for a few days now and everyone seems very helpful and knowledgeable!

My question is in regards to the "Make Your Move" program. I got an Amex prepaid a few months ago and remember seeing something about make your move in a review, which is one of the reasons I decided to go with the card. I also saw a few posts on here that referenced this.

However, the Make Your Move program is no longer listed on the Amex website anywhere. Does anyone know if they have discontinued the program or if it is still active?

Also, I noticed many, many posts urging people with recovering credit to obtain a Zync card, but that appears to no longer be an option. Would the green card be the next easiest to obtain? Does Amex have any plans to release another cars beneath the green anytime soon?

All of the old charge offs on my report will be falling off by December of this year. I currently have an active auto loan with all on time payments and I am about to get a secured credit card so that when everything falls off, I have a current positive trend on my report. I am hoping that a year or so from now I can get my foot in the door with American Express.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Make Your Move was cancelled, so that's no longer an option for you.

It sounds like you're on the right track, thought. Get that secured card. If your current bank offers one, go there. If not, Capital One offers decent secured cards. I suggest a deposit of at least $1,000.

By the time December rolls around, you'll have 9 months of good history on the secured card. I'd wait until you have 12 months of history before applying for Amex.

If you need a secured card, BofA's will likely become unsecured after a year of good credit history.
