Re: Amex Green Card Approval Odds

YMMV but I would age some of those INQ's for at least 6 months 

EX has a lot of INQ's and Amex pulls EX in most cases

I'd also write GW letters for the lates and paid COs.

Re: Amex Green Card Approval Odds

I think the Chase accounts showing may hurt your chances.  On the other hand nothing negative since 2009 is a positive.

Never take credit personally

Re: Amex Green Card Approval Odds

Id say low but with scores like that and the 6 new accounts, 1 more INQ won't hurt you... You need to garden for 12 months rather you get amex or not... so go ahead and apply... but approved or denied... GARDEN after that!

Fico Scores: EQ- 626 Overstck., TU 696 Walmart, EX 695 Chase (11-05-14)
