I am sure you qualify for most of the cards that are not NO PRE-SET spending limit.

Choose any cards and you'll be okay..

I really wouldn't apply for an AMEX card right now due to their practices and hassles. Membership has it's rewards.

 

I would go with Discover because they are very customer friendly and offer good rewards. They might not approve you for a high CL like AMEX but that's why Discover is in a better financial position than AMEX.

ok good to know

 

does Discover just have one type of card? or multiple types like Amex?

I believe they have 3-4 cards. The ones I can think of at the moment are the Discover Motiva, Discover More, and the Discover Open Road. They're all good cards and while the Motiva card doesn't offer a good rewards program like the Discover More, it's the easiest card to get approved for through Discover.

2007Credit:

well its upto you to apply but to qualify for AMEX cards, you can do a prequalify inquiries at the website. This is what I did back in december 2008 and I was approved for a card and I choose Blue Sky. 

This is the best credit card ever of all, I was approved and the card was sent to me 1 week later by UPS mail. I didnt expect it and i was surprised by UPS EXPRESS DELIVERY and 3 months later I got a 7,500 bonus points offer which is equal to $100 off on my balance or whatever.

So far my experience with AMEX is awesome, dont know about the future but so far so good.

Here is a link to see what cards you are prequalifed for.  Its a soft inquiry, so it doesn't hurt.
