IMO I wouldn't touch AMEX until the BK is 7 years or older.

I was told by Amex that my bankruptcy needs to be at least 8 years old for them. It will be 8 years old in October. I got Chase Freedom and Discover More but it was on recons. They both asked me the details behind my bankruptcy (medical bills when I didn't have insurance) and they both approved me with limits of $1000. I got those cards about 8 months ago.
