Probably a high 600 score minimum, but it will depend which card you apply for. The Blue Cash cards and Everyday cards may require a 720 or above.

I was recently approved with a Credit Karma  score of 701 Transunion/718 Equifax.  Amex runs Experian, and when I checked my Experian FICO score after opening the account, my score was actually 667.  I only received a $2000 credit line initially, but got the lowest ongoing APR they offer.  Credit line increased to $3000 60 days after opening the account.  CK showed my approval odds as Very Good, and I used the Amex precreening tool also before applying.  Hope this helps.
