    _Thanks_, River!! I was one of those who didn't make the deadline for the Secure Optima...I had sent my app in about two days before all the posts appeared about that program being canceled. Ack!

    Cheers, and have a great weekend,

    OK, Now I'm confused

    I called the Amex number you gave and asked about the secured card. I was told to call the number for Blue, and the rep said the secured Optima was still available. I told her that it was my understanding that it had been discontinued, but she said that was not the case and offered to send an app for the secured Optima. She didn't mention anything about the card you were told about. I guess the bottom line is that Amex reps are confused and our best bet is wait for an official announcement from Amex concerning this new secured card.

    I am also as I called the Number and was told no official word had come yet.

    I then called Centurian Bank, and was told the same, and furthermore the CSR told me that they are not even looking at the first of 2001, BUT NOW IT'S SOMETIME IN 2001!
