Re: Chances for Amex?

How many inquiries have you had in the past year and what is your utilization currently? American Express charge cards are supposedly easier to obtain than their revolving accounts. Maybe try applying for the Green card?

American Express Gold (April 2013) NPSL

If you have a thick file with history and no recent baddies I think going straight for the revolver is just fine.
