The only one that matters is the FICO.  The others are FAKO.  With a FICO of near 700, you should be good to go on the Amazon too.  This is assuming that you have a decent AAoA and utility.  i would actually app the Chase Amazon Visa if you elaborate a little more on your credit file.

Hey!  The satisfied judgement is also 3 yrs old? All everything else looks good if so.  What are your CC limits?

Just read your edit-   That judgement and CO is what's really hurting you.  How old? The 3 late payments hurt but they are getting older now for average credit CCs.  Also, is the loan mod reporting as a current installment loan?

Re: GECRB

Well, based on this info, I'd say go for the Amazon GE.  Leave the Chase Amazon Visa alone till you get some of the other baddies removed or they age some more.  That judgement's going to be a bear to remove.  I give you a 75-80% approval odds for GE Amazon.  50-55% Chase Visa.  You haven't burnt any inqs for a while and this is a good thing.  GE will pull TU.  Chase will pull EX/EQ more then likely.  It wouldn't hurt your profile to have a couple of more positive trade lines.  If your feeling gutsy, app the Chase see where you stand.  You might get approved on recon.  Worth the work if so.
