I don't have a US SSN. I was looking at the ways of getting ITIN, I see some people were rejected, some got accepted.s33n wrote: ↑Jan 3rd, 2019 5:46 pmJust checking, but do you have a US SSN? My prior assumption was that you needed one to build credit history in the US, but I see now that some US financial institutions will accept ITINs. Curious to hear if other Canadians have established credit history in the US this way, since I do have US Premier accounts (including MC).
I am little confused still. If you apply through Global Amex, wouldn't that build your credit history? Why would you need SSN?
I cancelled my HSBC WE. And no, they don't accept 100K from outside institutions, it has to be with HSBC. Spoke with multiple reps about this.
