Amex BK friendly at all??

I had a bk7 about 6 years ago and DID NOT have an Amex card at the time, nor have I ever shorted them money. I have been AU on a clear card for 1-2years and still currently. I have read that they are not bk friendly, but is that only if you file on them? Would they give me my own green charge card?

agree with CA again on both:

 

correct on amex and could have a shot with US Bank > 680.

For real?

DH and I have long history with USBank, and every time we go into the office, they remind us that they would like to offer us (DH, really) a card.  They send him pre-aprovals, but never me.  I was thinking it was because of the bk on my report.  They soft both of us on Equifax.  So, we've been waiting til that bk falls off of mine - would love it if we didn't have to wait.    Has anyone with a bk still reporting actually been accepted for the card?

 

I personally would love to dump BofA and get USBank on board.   *Sigh!*

I have a joint UsBank with bk on report, it's my highest CL also.

I had gotten a secured card right after bk 8 years ago but when they wouldn't unsecure it after 12 months I closed it, I didn't know scores back than or there rules etc.
