I really recommend getting an AMEX card as soon as possible because of the AAoA benefits. Charge cards are easier to get from them, but you really need to have 2+ credit cards with 6+ months history to get one, no matter what your FICO score is (aside from student ones).
I recently got an AMEX plat card after long hiatus and was pleasantly surprised that the card reported issuing date of my original AMEX card which I had gotten in college so I got a huge AAoA spike.
