I applied for this card with an EX score of 729 and CK says I had Fair odds with a cs of 697. I went to their website to apply to make sure I got the welcome bonus. I was instantly approved for 2k. I think I got a low limit because I only have secured cards and this is my first unsecured one. I have secured BOA and Disco. No collections and a car loan I just payed off. Credit history 11 yrs. Hard Inquires 9. I live in California and 95% of the lenders are pulling Experian so my Experian inquries are terrible. Payment history is at 100% payed on time. Total accounts only 5. Keep your limit to 30% or less and you'll be just fine.

I applied and received this card about 6 months ago... The first thing I was attracted to was the $150 welcome bonus offered when you spend $1,000 within the first 3 months. After spending WELL over $1,000 in less than the 3 months time frame I never received the welcome bonus or any information pertaining to it. After contacting customer service numerous times they are blatantly not honor the welcome bonus which is STILL posted/offered on all of their websites. Also you are not even able to redeem cash back until you have a minimum of $25 earned each time and many places don't even take American Express. I'm extremely dissatisfied with this card/company and I will no longer be using this card.
