AMEX Business Plat
Hope today everyone finds amazing deal online…I just have a quick question regarding applying for the AMEX Business Plat.
So I applied and got pending and eventually rejected, but on the flip side, I got asked to upgrade my current AMEX Business Gold. What is the chance for me to call in and ask if I can re-apply again? Or upgrading and applying are two different process and standards involved?
Thanks a bunch!
DId they say why you were rejected though?
I think upgrading and applying for new cards is separate since you’re not really adding credit by upgrading whereas you would be with a new card.
I’d wait 6 months to reapply since AMEX will ask you if you were recently rejected.
Yes they are separate processes as David mentions. There usually isn’t a hard pull for an upgrade either. On the flip side you’re usually not going to get as large of a bonus if you upgrade. I’m also curious. What did they say when you called in?
