I would suggest waiting until your first card has been open for at least a year. American Express has higher requirements than other companies even if you're applying for the charge card. Show them that you can handle credit properly by doing well with your other cards.

thanks for the advice
i was thinking the same thing so 1year ok its not that long
Welcome to the forum
Charge cards are not that hard to get if you don't have any baddies and can garden for 9 months showing perfect payment history I think you would have a shot at that time

yea ill wait the 9 months to the year before i go for american express
thanks for the advice everyone
Wise move and good luck when you do pull the trigger on Amex
