Re: Chances of Amex Charge

Congrats!  :smileyhappy:. Amex is absolutely income biased!  I think you will find because of your higher then preferred utility, the APR on your delta card will probably be high.  No problem though- they are good about APR reduction with good credit behavior!  Nice thing is, you'll get your EX FICO in the mail soon.  :smileyhappy:. Again, CONGRATS!  Woo Hoo!


Starting Score: 642

Re: Chances of Amex Charge

For most, I think the best strategy is to start out with the Zync to build a histor with Amex and gain bonus points along the way.  

 

Bank the points, and after a year, apply for the no annual fee PRG with a sign up bonus.  Then, 50K + Zync points all become full MR.  This is how I'd do it.
