Those scores are okay.  But scores aren't everything.  I would compare your score to a B in first grade.  B is a great grade but its still only first grade.

 

I was a little unclear.  What cards do you have right now?  Is that Capital One still open?  What limit and open when?  Also, any negatives on your credit reports like late payments, charge offs, etc.

Do you have any money you can afford to tie up for 6 months or so?  Getting high limit via secured card will jumpstart your credit.  Its okay if you don't, but just have to do it the slower way.

Highly doubtful you would get Amex right now.  Give it 6 months if you follow plan.  Can you answer question about coming up with money for deposit?  Also, do you have Walmartendear you and do you shop there?
