Table of Credit Card Contents

The rewards for opening a card are low.
Suggested Application Time
- AmEx is not sensitive to Hard Pull quantities.
- When you apply for a credit card, AmEx may pop up to inform you that because you have a bad relationship with AmEx, you are not eligible for the credit card bonus. In this case, you should always use your existing AmEx card and try not to close it. It will probably take a while.
- You can only get the reward of opening a card once in your life, so be sure to wait for the highest offer in history to apply!
- Welcome bonus offer not available to applicants who: (1) Have or Have had this product or the Delta SkyMiles Options Credit Card, or (2) Currently Have or Have had one of the following products in the last 90 days: Delta SkyMiles Credit Card, Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card, Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card, or Delta Reserve Credit Card.
- Credit history more than six months can try to apply.
- AmEx can hold up to five credit CARDS at a time, but Charge CARDS are not subject to this rule.
- Only two credit CARDS can be approved within 90 days, but the Charge Card is not subject to this rule. CARDS approved in the same day will merge Hard Pull.
After the Application
AmEx reconsideration back door phone: 877-399-3083. Amex is well protected from the real back door, and calls are usually made by the customer service staff there. You can’t get in touch with the people who decide.
This card is not special, and the bonus for opening the card is extremely low, because AmEx only allows 5 card slots, so it is not even recommended to apply. Note that if you are holding a Delta series credit card, you will not be rewarded for opening this card.
