Probably not.  You need a card with at least 6 months history and your scores are on the low end.  I was told by AMEX CSR they look for 650-680 for ZYNC if you have a decient salary.  (To put in context, the guy was giving me specific recommendations a couple months ago and was looking at my denial letter from March this year.  Based on my 6 figure income he gave me this score range.  If you have lower income you may need higher scores.  From what Ive read 680 is a good target score for this product.)

 

Give it some time.  I waited 6 months from March 3, 2012 to Sept 10, 2012 to reapply.  The wait was well worth it as I got both Zync and Amex Delta Gold.



Starting Score: EQ 551 TU 548 CK 607on 6/8/12, EX 542(AMEX pull 3/4/12)
Current Score: EQ 710 TU 727 EX 704 CK 719(FAKO-EX 697, EQ 697, TU 697)
