Long story short is that i want to join amex but dont know when.
Ill list my standings:

Credit limits range from 300-7,000
All 0 balance.
Always paid on time,no baddies what so ever on my record.
My oldest accounts are 3 years
My aaoa is 1.2
Now here is the catch,the only catch i can think of...
I have 15 injuries within the last 2 years,which most of them will fall off this year leaving me with 6 inquiries.

One last thing my Ex fako score is 738,was 769 till i got all those inquiries.

In my experience, American Express doesn't care about inquiries. I just got approved for two of their cards with their inquiry being the 23rd on Experian. In June last year I had about 15 or something and was instantly approved for another card from them. All inquiries were accrued last year.

 

My history was a lot shorter than yours when I got the Blue Cash Everyday, so I see no reason you wouldn't get any card you want from them.
