Amex clear

I recently received my transunion credit score (673). I have been debating applying for an Amex clear card for some time now but have been hesitant because I do not want to get denied. Any reccomendations would be greatly appreciated on whether or not I should apply.

I would not apply. Get your score over 720.

What does EX report look like...they are big EX pullers-

Re: Amex clear

AMEX typically pulls EX, so your TU score isn't a good indicator.


I was accepted for AMEX Clear with very little history (zero history with AMEX) when my EX was a 714.

In My Wallet:
AMEX BCE, Citi Forward, Chase Freedom

In My Sockdrawer:
AMEX Clear, Citi Platinum Select, US Bank Platinum, J.Crew

I got it with a sub 700 credit score.  But I started with the Zync for a year, dunno if that helped...oh and I have their savings account too.

Re: Amex clear

Clear might be one of the tougher revolvers to get. Going for a Blue or Delta might be easier.
