Although they were bk-friendlier in the past, I applied for the Amex recently and was turned down only for my bankruptcy. After inquiring through both the email and phone CSR, the phone CSR talked to an analyst who said they currently want 7 years from a bankruptcy.  I would guess that active duty might get a break on this....





I think more so than being "active duty" is type of membership (full or limited), length of membership and depth of relationship.  Full members get preferencial treatment.  The longer the length of membership, the better.  The more products you have through them the better (auto, home, life, checking, savings, cd's, investment, ira/retirment, etc).
