While i was rebuilding (started in april 2015) I applied a few times with no luck. December 2015 i was approved for a BCE with $500 limit, cli'd to $1K at the time of activation. In April, i applied for Delta skymiles, Green Card, and PRG card the same night and got approved for all. The only rule for sure is that you must have 5 days in between 2 revolver cards or they will hold the second revolver application for 5 days. Besides that, it is all up to you. Amex pays more attention to your relation with them than your credit report, in general. So if you current approval is a border line approval, i would at least 6 months, use and pay off the card every month to increase your chance in getting better / higher approvals with them for the future cards. If you give more detail, such as current cards, uti, scores, than someone else may help you further with your question.

 

PS: I never got any pre-approvals, or was never pre-approved for anything on their website. They were all cold apps.

Re: Amex Pre Approval Question

I waited a month to get my second Amex revolver. Now, I'm waiting until after my 3X CLI this month to get either a business one or a charge card with them.
