Build up a bit more history and get the card you want. If you pay in full each month a charge card like green is perfect to start with.

Ok Guys, i just applied for AMEX Green charge card and guess what i got APPROVED!! :)
At first it said we couldn't decide in 60 secs, then i receive a email 2 mins later stating my card approval. Interesting how they didnt ask for proof of income.

I had just posted not long ago about how I went from a $500 Capital One to an American Express Platinum with about the same history as you. So I say it is doable cant say for sure tho.

Here is my post if your interested.

Green is NPSL. There should be a "check spending ability" with your online access.

There was an option for my PRG where I could set up installment payments on any purchases over $100 the APR was like 18% IIRC.

I've never had to, I just pay my balance in full each month, but I did select installment payments if I ever needed to.

Go for Zync. Zync is a good Amex starter card because it's the easiest card to get approved for. Your FICO scores look good. I say go for it.
Cards:
American Express: Business Platinum-NPSL, Delta SkyMiles Gold-$2K
Chase: Sapphire Preferred-$5K, Southwest Airlines Visa-$3.7K, Freedom-$400
USAA: Platinum MC-$4K, Advantage Rate MC-$4K, Amex-$4K
FBNO: BucksBack Visa-$1K, Amex-$1.7K
GECRB: Walmart Discover-$3,7K
Barclays: Financing Visa-$3.2K, Juniper MC-$1.1K
Capital One: Platinum MC-$1.5K, Platinum MC-$750
CFNA: Firestone-$1.6K
CitiBank: Office Depot Business Card-$1K
