Global Transfer with existing credit history

Postby kelvSYC » Fri Apr 05, 2013 11:21 pm

I'm wondering if a forum member can answer this question: as you can see from my sig, I hace credit history with both Canada and the US. Should I have to move back to Canada on a more permanent basis, I would likely need to use the Global Transfer program to get a Canadian card using my existing American card.

Since the Global Transfer program is mainly meant for people moving to a new place where they have no credit history (supposedly), what is the experience like for persons who are using the program to move to a place where they do have a credit history?

(As for the card itself, it's kind of hard to swallow that AmEx doesn't offer something like the Blue Cash Everyday in Canada - only the much weaker Blue Choice or the Air Miles card...)
Current Credit Scores:
VantageScore 3.0 - 760 TU, 764 EX (11-19-16, Credit Karma)

Discover - 750 TU (11-4-16, Discover statement)

Current Credit Cards:
RBC - $8000 CAD
BoA - $13500 USD
