i posted about this before if you look under my name you should find it.
here is my original post.
keep seeing post about all the qualifications that AMEX expects before they approve your credit. Well I got The starwood preferred card in october at the time my scores were in the high 500's with 1 co and 4 collection accounts. $1000 limit on a preapproval. I was going through my email archives and realized that i signed up to be a starwood preferred guest in july, nothing special. I assume that is why i was given the preapproval. I posted this to all who don't think they can get an amex with bad credit. oh by the way only had one cc at the time, target. i like the card and would probably use the rewards more if i weren't on bedrest with new baby on the way.
