Had a 540 score about 6 months ago. Always wanted to be apart of the Amex family and ive been itching to get my hands on one of there cards. So I decided to pull the trigger and was aproved for 1K. Got hyped up and applied for the Green Card, but was swiftly let down. Still happy to get my foot in Amex. Currently have Cap 1 Secured $250 QuicksilverOne $500 and now the Gold Delta Skymiles $1000. I have two open collections from 2012 but no missed payments 3% credit utilization and only 3 recent inquiries.

Love this card was approved with CK very good odds, applied and received instant approval!; giving it only 3 stars due to card chip problems, only works if swiped, received replacement card and same issue. Chip will not work at anytime, any place, but I'm able to use it online and at local gas stations which is fine with me. Thank you American Express!
