I am pretty sure, they have a different scoring system at Amex. That is very hard to predict just like Fico Scores hard to predict.

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