Restrictions when you apply:

1. You can only apply for one AMEX credit card per day, but the rule does not apply to AMEX charge cards. If you apply one credit card and one charge card on the same day, AMEX are going to combine hard-pull (for credit report). Therefore we suggest the reader apply for another AMEX charge card at the same time when applying AMEX credit card, so the applicant will only be hard-pulled once.

2. Please check the status from this link (click me) if you do not get instant approval. We strongly suggest you to call AMEX Reconsider Line to ask them about reconsidering the application if you do not get instant approval or be denied. Generally, you will have a chance to be approved after providing the information they need when calling them. The phone number of AMEX Reconsideration Line is 1-800-567-1083.


This card is good for cardholders who are served as purchasing representatives because of high shipping demand. In addition, you can earn exclusive 2 additional MR points per dollar with FedEx shipping, business and document services through AMEX OPEN. It means you could get 5 MR points per dollar for Fedex shipping. Even you just use USPS or other shipping provider, you are still eligible to earn 3 MR per dollar spending. This is the card which the small business owner should have due to lots of business expense.
