If you apply for Amex with a low(er) credit score, you should look for a charge card, like the regular green card, rather than, say, a gold SkyMiles card. For whatever reason I understand the charge cards are easier to get than the credit cards. Just be aware that with their charge cards you pay the balance in full every month. You might be able to get the green card with a 634 score, but if it were me, I'd wait six months before I applied. And don't apply for anything else in the interim.
