EDIT information from Better.com!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hello,
I work with Better,com and wanted to see if you could please add in the following information to your post on Amex/Better,com deal as it reads incorrect as it stands, especially regarding eligibility. We want to make sure the offer is stated as accurately as possible:
1) Mortgage rates of any specific customer, stated or otherwise, should not be taken as indicative of a mortgage rate available to all customers. Pricing is based on a number of factors, including the individual credit profile of a potential borrower.
2) The offer is only available to those borrowers who have been marketed to directly by American Express, and those who have not received the offer on their Amex portal or via email are not eligible.

What credit score is required to qualify for 2.875% rate. I just checked their current rates and lowest I am seeing for the excellent score is 3.5%. Am I missing something?

I locked in my rate on November 5th, so rates may have changed for market conditions since then.

I applied with my wife, we both have credit scores above 750. They pulled all 3 scores.

Also, of that $2517 in closing costs. A big portion was buying down the rate:
0.757% of Loan Amount (Points) -- $1,653

Thanks. Looks like they will do a soft credit check ( no good) for just to enroll for the promotion. I am in the middle of closing a refinance with WF and looking at all the factors I don't see a benefit for me to consider Better.

$2,500 from amex is not a benefit?

Did this offer show up in your Amex card's Amex Offers & Benefits section?
Also I don't seem to find rate lower than 3% I am in 800+ on my scores

You are better off waiting for rates to come back down than taking this credit. Although I see it only starts in July, interesting. By then it may be a good play.

Statement credit; therefore, would not receive a 1099. I will ask for a refund check once it hits from Amex since I keep a zero balance.
