Application Tips


Amex Application Tips



  • Safe to Apply: Amex is the safest bank for trying your luck at earning a new welcome bonus offer. They don’t usually issue a hard pull when denying your application, and if you already have an Amex card, they won't usually issue a hard pull when approved for another one. Plus, they’ll now warn you during the application process if you’re not eligible for the bonus.

  • Lifetime Rule: If you've ever had the same card before, you are most likely prohibited from earning a welcome bonus offer for the card if you apply now. Fortunately you'll be warned during the application process if this is the case. Amex is known to "forget" that you've had a card after about 7 years.

  • 90 Day Rule: You can get at most two credit cards within 90 days. This rule does not apply to Pay Over Time (charge) cards.

  • 5 credit card max: Amex usually won't approve applications for new credit cards if you already have 5 or more Amex credit cards or 10 or more charge cards.

  • Better Offers: You may be able to get a better offer than the best available public offer. Details here.

  • Hard inquiries combine into 1 when approved same day

Unfortunately the SUB is down to 80K.

Geoff Stuart

We have TD Ameritrade IRA’s. TD has been bought by Schwab and they are in the process of merging. Are we Schwab customers for the purposes of this offer?

Nick Reyes

You have to log in to your Schwab account to apply. Can you log in at Schwab?

Geoff Stuart

Not yet. Some TDA forms and processes on the TDA site are now connecting to Schwab forms and processes. The easiest way to solve this is just to open a Schwab account and just transfer some funds in until the merger completes. If I have any difficulty with that approach, I’ll come back here and update.
