Great advice from Obi-dan! If you don't have a purpose, why apply? And if you do have a purpose, why specifically AMEX? There are certainly other cards for someone with limited income. But as stated above, "it can be a dangerous temptation to overextend". Trust me, folks here know. We've been there/done that/won the t-shirt.
