Should I Apply for Amex Gold Or Green?

The annual fee difference doesn't bother me,I  don't want to be denied when i could have gotten the Green.  My question is if there is a big difference between them, approval-wise.  Here are my current EX stats, assuming they pull from there.

 

Approximate score 680-718

AAoA-1.5 years

2 open credit cards  perfect history 500 and 600 of CL

I also leased a car with a cosigner 4 months ago

6 iquires, last one on january

I earn 50K per year

 

Should I apply?

Yup, read on here that it's the same criteria for all 3 (Green, Gold & Platinum).   Might as well go for Platinum if you don't mind the $450 AF. Smiley Tongue

Go for the Gold (PRG) as its 3-2-1 points, and hotel perk is very good for the 175$ a year. ACM add-ons are no charge either. Or, if hotels and such aren't your thing than look at the green. To me the regular gold isn't all that competitive anymore.

How long have you had the 2 cards?

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
