I guess one of the charge cards would be the easiest to get.

Your score are good for a charge and if approved App any revolver you wish minutes later. I did it yesterday YMMV tho

Good Luck should you app 

If you are monitoring your CR if they pull a HP your not on the list if they don't pull Amex long memory is in effect

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Amex is a picky lender IMHO what's a few months for CR to clear up you have come so far and I think you have done well. and have a good shot baring blacklisted

The old saying better safe than sorry wait a little longer for better chances just my 2 cents tho

You may gain points depends on if you have a thick credit file 

Thin files usually suffer
