I've been an authorized user on an AmEx card for about a year and a half.  Always pay in full, it has a high CL.  My scores are in the low 600's.  Will be chances be better forming my own relationship with Amex?  I'd like to app for the Gold Card once a few more negatives drop off next month.  I've heard of people being approved with scores right around 600.  I should have jumped on the Zync bandwagon while it was still there!


Thanks guys!

In addition to FICO scoring, Amex uses their own Internal Scoring System. Its possible to get a charge card with a score of around 600 or so. There are alot of factors they take into consideration.
