first off,...do you have a Bankruptcy on your report?
if yes: prepare to fight to get that Amex,..they hate BK's..
 
if no...then what's your scores?
i believe they pull Experian to judge

I like Amex for their rewards program and great customer service.  They pull mostly from EX and sometimes EQ.  Do you know your FICO EQ and EX scores?
Credit Profile -
FICO 08 Scores (08-22-2014): EQ 820, EX 817, TU 815
All three scores were 850. Lost points for not having an open installment TL. So, BE WARNED!!!!!
Credit History: 26+ years ~ AAoA: 12 years ~ Util: 1% ~ Inqs: EX 1 (Amex 07-15-2014)

Do you need excellent credit to get an AM EX credit card?  I have tried several times even when my credit was good and could not get one.

My scores are in the mid to upper 500's with a BK from about 5 years ago.  Judgeing by what everyone is saying, I will probably have to wait 5 more years to have a chance.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
