I'd stick to paper and pen or via AMEX official website.
Heck, most companies always gets my name wrong because of my two-word first name. So applying via phone is not an option for me. The name and format on the applications are correct but when I receive my card or statement, either they make my two-word first name as one word or they use the second word of my first name as my middle name; and to think that I already indicated on my application my middle name (mother's maiden family name) or middle initial and they still get it wrong.
Advantages: Not sure if there are any since I am one of those "security freak" who would hesitate to give any sensitive information over the phone.
