Dad was approved for Amex and chase

My father recently settled his charged off account on his credit report after 5years, and his credit score currently is 636, he hasn't had any credit card since the negative in his cr, today he applied for Amex BCE and chase freedom and was instantly approved. He got 3k limit for chase and the Amex BCE is uncertain yet till he received the card.
