Sorry klin... yes they are not BK friendly.
You might be able to recon the app if your BK is dropping off super soon.  Not sure how far into the 9th year you are.

I would definitely recon. Usually over 7 years Amex is okay with it.  Unfortunately its a toss up about what they will do lately. Issuing cards to lower than normal scores, closing long-standing relationships.  You may have been better off with the decline.

Sorry. Work on the Ficos and make a plan for end of next year or first of 2009. Keep your chin up.

Wait- you said nine years?
