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 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.

Notes:

Even this card has annual fee, it provides higher category spending bonus and complimentary Hilton Honors Gold status (free breakfast in most of Hilton properties). Although this card can be downgrade to AMEX Hilton Honors to earn bonus without credit hard-pull, it is not suggested to do it before applying AMEX Hilton Honors since welcome bonus from newly applied AMEX credit cards can only be earned once in a lifetime.
