Anyone know the minimum Ex Fico to get one of these?

Re: AMEX Delta Skymiles

I once saw a post with someone getting one with a 590, but I think the average is about 620.
Here we go again...

Re: AMEX Delta Skymiles

I got mine with an EX @ 655.  From what I understand AMEX looks more at your history, more so than your score.  www.scorematch.com and www.whogavemecredit.com are great references.  That's how I knew to apply for the Delta Skymiles card from any of the other cards.

Re: AMEX Delta Skymiles

I concur with the other posters. I got my Delta Card with a score of 641. Had a med collection less than a year, but good history on all of my credit accounts. I think it is pretty easy to get approved for a Skymiles card, but I would make sure it is at least 620.
FICO's: TU: 682 EX: 688 EQ: Unknown

In my wallet (strikethough are getting the axe soon): Amex Rewards Plus Gold | BECU: 10,000 | AlaskaUSA FCU: 6,900 | Citi Forward 6,500 | BOA Travel Rewards: 5,000 | US Bank Cash+: 5,000 | Merrick: 4,200 | Chase Freedom: 3,500 | Juniper: 3,100 | Household: 2,450 | Best Buy Reward Zone: 2,000 | Cap1: 1,500 | Cap1: 750 | Bailey's Furniture: 3,100 | Lowes: 4,500 | Care Credit: 2,000 | Zales: 1,400 | Kohls: 400 | Sam's: 5,200 | Walmart: 1,100 | Discover More: 1,000

Wow!  I know the Skymiles isn't exactly the hardest Amex to get (I got one, so there's proof right there :smileytongue: ) but you got one with 90% util?  That kind of floored me.
 
No offense.  You know how the cheese likes the peas. :smileytongue:

Congrats peas. I am so jealous of you guys in the Delta Club. Watch out, I am sure, I'll join the league one day, some day soon.
