I say go for it. I'd peg the odds as 3:2 that you'll get the BCP with $2,000 initial CL. WCS is you get an inquiry, but if so then NBD.
Let us know what you do and good luck!

I got BCE with w/ multiple settled accounts after they were CO'd. I have history with AMEX back to 1995 so maybe that helps and I never burned them, just WF and BoFA. BCP might be tougher. FWIW I was triple pulled and TU sealed the approval at 680 so yea it's certainly possible with some scars.
Because the chicks dig it when I throw down the card to the waiter and...it comes in handy if I'm short on cash until payday and need a short spot. AMEX gets the booty, and that's important when you're a Pirate.

Thanks for the feedback and advice. I think I'm going to bite the bullet and apply for a Gold card first, wait out the 6 months and app for the BCP, atleast it will be SP after the Gold card. Here's hoping they take me back into the fold haha!
