WHO KNOWS THIS QUESTION RE: AMEX

I have a Green amex for about 3 months. GOOD STANDING.

 

 

I want the AMEX jet blue card because i fly with them.

 

If i close my green amex and apply for the jetblue amex, will my very short history with amex help at all with the jet blue card?

 

Is there a good way to go about this?

 

Thanks fellas..

Amex Green Card, U.S. Bank Platinum $2,000, U.S. Bank Line of Credit $1,500, BoFA Visa $500, C1 $500

I think it would actually be a good idea to keep the AMEX green open THEN apply for the jetblue for a better chance of approval. I do think though you should wait a little longer to apply (minimum of 6 months history with the green) before you even attempt to app for Jetblue.

Re: WHO KNOWS THIS QUESTION RE: AMEX

I would say to wait six months to apply for JetBlue Amex.

Keep your Green open for the year. You dont have a AF for the first year.

Wait 6 months, build the relationship and if denied then its only a SP.

If you close your card then apply and get denied its another HP
