Hi, I am new to the forums, but the advice I have gotten from lurking has been gold!
I am going on 4 years past BK...I had a Jet Blue branded amex with a $4,400 limit that was included in my BK...not sure how much I burned them for...those were bad times.
So is it safe to asume then that I I wait 4 more years, keeping my nose clean, it will be possible to get an Amex again? I really miss that card.

First, this thread is old, so not sure he is still monitoring. But you should read what he did to get this. He basically went to war with Amex and has a very large income, which he mentioned repeatedly. I don't think it is "safe" to assume you will also succeed. It might be better to say that if you are more than 7 years post-bankrupcy and are prepared to be a total pain in the ass to Amex repeatedly, and you have a very high income, you might succeed in getting another Amex. You will need to decide if that is worth the effort.
