thank you! i was under the impression from reading various posts on this site that it's easier to get an approval for charge cards like the gold card vs. credit cards like blue cash. i actually do prefer blue cash vs. the gold card, but i was thinking that if it's easier to get the gold card, i would apply for that first just to get my foot in the door with amex. so should i just skip the gold and go straight to blue cash once i have steady income again?
