How to get approved for a starwood card?
« on: October 05, 2008, 03:23:55 AM »
can anyone tell me PLEASE whats the magic score needed to get approved for a starwood Amex card?
my score was about 710 and fell to 675! because of a $20 late payment which i for got to send to gap CC 2 months ago.... any help from anyone?
p.s.  about taking off the gap late pmt. from the credit report, i guess there is no way for that...

I dont think its as much the score as it is the recent late payment on the Gap card.
What you should try to do is call Gap and ask them to remove the late payment.
You should be able to get them to do it.
Try telling them you were out of town and didnt get the bill and have never been late before etc...
you should be able to get them to take it off.
Good luck

didn't know a credit card company can take back a late report.....
in any case, spoke with gap, explained them the situation, they said by they'll try to take it off.
at the end of the conversation i asked the rep if i can get transfrd. to a supervisor, asked why, told him cause i wanna lwet his S>V> that he did a great job (!), he told me one min. he came back on the line 3-4 min. later and said by the end of the month it will get out of my report....
spoke to s.v. to thank the rep. now let's wait and see what happens.
thanks for letting me know they can opull it off!

No problem.
They can and do take off lates all the time.
Sometimes you just need to ask nicely  ;)
