Good card to have
Anonymous Cardholder

I was approved after a week and a half. I also applied for the Amex everyday card as well on the same day. I had to wait for the fraud department to call and verify it was me but was instantly approved right afterwards. Also they shipped the cards out 2-3 business days so you receive them right away. You also get a account as soon as you're approved.

my credit scores are okay and I guess my history was enough to get me approved. I had two charge offs from 2007 and no late payment or other negative items on my credit report.

JUST APPROVED with Imperfect Credit

Transunion Score 652, Equifax Score 663 

Total Credit Card Limit $9,000 

Total Credit Card Debit $3500

Lots of late payments on my credit report from summer 2015... I was unemployed for 3 months. 

I have been working hard to rebuild my credit over the past two years.

Great card, keeps me spending wisely!
AmexHolder Cardholder

Love the fact that this card requires my charges to be paid in full every month.  I've been on the brink of card debt once already, and I don't want to go back!  This is the perfect balance:  it's the hybrid between a debit and a full on credit card!  It's perfect!  American Express is still a fabulous company, I'd recommend them to anyone!  Get this card if you're conscious about your spending and you want to be debt-free!

AWFUL card No spending limit hurts score
promedia2000 Cardholder

Stay away unless you want your credit score to go down from using this card as amex doesn't report a limit, even $1 on the card looks like its over the limit.

I'd never had that problem with my Gold card. I just kept paying my balances off every month and within a month, my score went up by 10 points. That's in one month.
