Which credit reporting agency does American Express use?

Postby Oliver2013 » Fri Aug 02, 2013 12:26 am

Which credit bureau does Amex rely on the most. Does Amex checks all three credit reporting agencies or one in particular?

Generally Experian. They have a long history together.

Oliver- If your borderline, they'll pull all 3. In general, they have always pulled EX for me when I apply for the BCE (still no luck) so that is generally the main bureau they use.

Citi: Forward-4.5k American Airlines Advantage Platinum Select World Elite MasterCard 9/6/15-4K
Discover: More-7k
Amex BCE.2k- Amex SPG-5k

Everyone here is 100% correct. For every application I've ever put in with Amex (quite a few) they pulled EX.
