Getting in with AMEX early is great. First, backdating is awesome for later in life to help maintain or grow your AAoA (Average Age of Accounts). 2nd, AMEX revolvers can be tuff to get without history with AMEX (ie via charge cards). Why are AMEX revolvers so great? When you are early in your credit history, building up your CLs is one of the key goals. AMEX's CLI policy is one of the most (if not the most) consumer friendly around. 3X CLIs via SP with the first coming in 61 days and then every 6 months after than.
