I was thinking of applying for the American Express Blue Card! What are the requirements? Who do they pull? I already have a Visa since Mar PIF each month ready to add to my history. Should I apply to AmEX or Chase Bank? Which Chase CC is the easy to get?

I've been doing the same thing, building credit. From what I understand, Discover and Amex are harder to get than bank issued MasterCard/Visa. My advice would be to go for a second bank issued MasterCard or Visa, and try for the Amex at the end of the year. Just my $.02, but let us know how it works out if you choose to apply!
