I applied for the Amex Green this past Tuesday and was instantly approved! Took just like 10 seconds
Let me describe my credit profile to assist people that are considering the Green/Gold. When I applied I had 8 months of paid history with Discover (it card) 500CL, 4% util, one inquiry (discover) and no other items on my credit report. When I applied my score were: 770 Equifax, 750 Exp and 770 Transunion. In 6 months I plan to apply for the Amex ED card! I should be able to get it with 6 months history with green?
PS I want to thank Carefulbuilder14 for steering me away from secured cards when I was establishing history with Discover!
PSS The night before I applied, Discover doubled my Cl with an auto CLI to $1,000!
