yes charge card is much easier because you have to pay in full and amex can set limits as low as $500 to that charge card

Sorry to ask again but can I apply to the Blue cash card, and if I got denied then I can apply to the Gold card in the same day, and it will be 1 hit to my credit report instead of two?

yes unless amex has changed there policy

let us know the answer!

I hope other members with limited history like me will benefit from this post
In my first post I wrote my credit history, I'm waiting for my Kohls card to report the 0 balance "hopefully tomorrow" then I will apply to the Blue cash card and see what happens, if denied then I will try the Gold card.
I will update soon

Oh my God, I'm so happy, they approved me for the Blue Cash one from the first trial
Not much credit limit $2000 only but it is better than to be denied. they said I will receive card in mail but I didn't get any email confirmation
Do Amex do auto CL increase or I have to call them every 6 months and request it from them?
Thanks all for your help
Update: they pulled from all 3 credit bureaus... not complaining at all...

you can request 3x current limit every 6 months

cool, will the CLI result in a hard inquiry in my report? and if I didn't request it, will they do it automatically after 1 year?
