Trying to Raise my utilization %

I have a 648 score and want to apply for a new cc but don't want to risk an inquiry if it's going to be no. Any suggestions on a CC with this type of score? My current utilization is about 25% but i wanted to get more CL so that would go down. Any help would be great.

The AMEX Hilton has similar approval criteria as the Delta. More AMEXs means more CL, and if you apply within a few days of each other you'll likely only incur a single EX pull.
 
And check out some of the friendly CCCs in my sig.

I have heard that AMEX is not BK friendly.  But I need to tell you that I recently learned that BKs do not automatically disqualify you from obtaining an AMEX card.  A lot of it depends on whether or not you had an AMEX account included in your BK.
