Should be off your report by now

Helpful to 3 out of 3 people

That bankruptcy should be off your report by now, so the average lender won't even know it ever happened.

However, you're talking about trying to do business with one of the companies that you...well...pretty much screwed out of money.  They have your old information in their systems.  Good chance they will never do business with you again.  Can't say I blame them.  Put yourself in their shoes.  Bad investment on their part.

Best move for you is to forget about AMEX and pursue a totally different card from a company you've never done business with before.  there are plenty of options out there.  Move on from AMEX.

I have good credit and AMEX won't touch me, but others have allowed me credit.  Who needs AMEX?  I don't.

As already said, forget about AMEX, there are plenty of other lenders out there that are easier to work with.
