    I was just wondering if anyone has had any success with getting their Secured Amex card reported on any of the three credit reports. If so, How did you do it?

    I've only had my Amex Optima secure card almost a month now and have read that they do NOT report,but also have read previous post that said that you could call and have it manually done thru credit reporting agencies.Maybe someone who has done this could share some info.

    I have tried WITHOUT sucsess.
    Amex won't budge on this issue, and the C.R.B.'s won't do anything to help you get unreported credit reported.

    How old was the account when you tried to have it reported. Was it at least 12 months old. I plan to have them add the old history after 18 months.

    wow, That is a long time. Maybe you should wait for the 12 month or 18 month mark. Did you send a letter to the credit bureau with your credit history and ask them to add the positive trade? Then the credit bureau would then just verify it with amex.

    I did indeed, but got form letters back from the credit bureaus telling me a B.S. reason that no one would pay any attention to the credit if it was done mannualy, so they don't do it!
