AMEX and Chase

What kind of credit scores do AMEX and Chase like to see when approving a credit card?  I have no late payments of any kind and about an average of 6 years credit history.

You should be fine with the scores you got. I only had a 660 something when I got my first Amex and way less history.

Re: AMEX and Chase

i was around 670's with a low aaoa. 

and they both gave me 500 limits but this was prior to having any non store cards. 

 

with your aaoa and scores and no baddies you could apply for any amex or chase card you wanted.

Re: AMEX and Chase

What is CSP? Unfortunately my limits right now are 300 and 500, so I am wanting to start getting higher limits.
