I'm wondering the same thing. When I have six ontimes behind me, lower my util, I hope they'll let dh have a card again, even if it's green. When they shut dh down, I immediately paid the balance in full.
Hopefully his scores will all be in mid 600's by June, so we'll see if theres a pre-approval.
UNDERNEATH THEY DID HAVE THE LINKS TO APPLY FOR PLAT CLEAR AND GOLD. I JUST PAID OFF A OLD DEROG AMEX FROM 01. HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT TO APPLY? EXP FICO 652
My suggestion, wait at least 3-4 weeks before you apply. So it would update in all Amex systems. When you apply for new card, go for Delta Classic and Green Charge Card. That is the safest way from what I have seen in the Amex world.
