From what you have now, I'd say you're in the clear, especially with that Discover/Chase combo.

On the other hand, not sure how many inquiries you've had thus far, but there's a slight chance you'd be docked for too many new accounts, and possible balances on current cards (if you have any now).

Otherwise the green charge card is somewhat an easier card to obtain from the information here on the forum. Best of luck!

At 640 you have a 7% chance of approval. If you wait, make six months of on-time payments and lower your balance, your score will be in the 660 to 670 increasing your chance to about 50%.

My take? Dont waist the hard pull if you can wait but it your call.

Yeah I'm totally surprised I have the discover and Chase but I've been good with them and have never paid even a day late on anything, I'm really anal about that lol. But I am high in inquires as well because I did move out on my own a year ago. But I may just wait then in that case. With my score I wanna say I'm about at 700 plus score which I know no one uses... But fico I wanna say roughly 640. Well thanks guys!!

Amex charge cards are easier to get than the credit cards. I wouldn't worry about the 640 as much as you should worry about the 48% utility.

You have the whole year to be a Member Since 12, so I would wait until you get to 30% utility.

Ok yeah that's not a bad idea. Well I had applied for a zync card and they denied me because my fico was too low. But I may just focus on paying my bigger balances first.

That's ok, don't sweat it.

Like i said in 6 months and 660s/670s, you will be paying for the drinks with your American Express.
