Re: Which card should I apply to first.

   I did cap one and  walmart with bad credit and was approved and am very happy with both. I would say certainly don't apply for the Amex til you have more of your own history. If you are determined to apply for the Amazon and the Amex, go for the amazon first as it is the easier of the two. Good luck.

Call right away. Check the backdoor numbers sticky in the top of this forum. They will more than likely clarify one or two things and approve you within a couple of minutes.


btw, I am jealous of your BCP haha.

Ok i'll try calling tommorow. For the Amazon Visa I would be calling chase directly? Using this number from backdoor thread:

Chase: 888-270-2127 (App recon)?

Yes, use that number..  Don't wait, because then it could be too late for them to do anything.
