when I first applied it was around 1987 or the annual fee was 45.00 , I picked up the application at Macys Garden state plaza, it was the first credit card application i ever filled out. I was denied a few months later I applied for a First Fidelity visa and was approved.
I think a few years later I applied for the Gold card(in those days there was no premier rewards gold card) the annual fee was either 65.00 or 75.00 I think it was around the early to mid 90's. I know in 1998 I applied for the gold optima, I picked up the application at the Nanuet Mall
when American Express came out to meet new cardmembers and try to get people to apply for there cards.
I was given there lower level blue optima I wasn't happy so I canceled the Blue optima. I'm sure there were other times I applied for
the Green card and was denied. I don't even know if there were credit scores in those days.
in 2010 I applied for the green card and was approved I don't know what my score was then.
