I wasn't sure that I'd be approved and am very surprised that they gave me a 8,000 limit. Awesome! I think there must be some factors that I am not aware of that caused them to approve me. I have 100% payment history, Only 32,000 income, it shows that I have about 6 years of credit history (though I have much more). From all the different posts I wasn't sure if I should try, I've been very careful about not letting anyone do a hard pull on my credit. So thank you! I am very pleased and surprised.

A little bit disappointed by the 1000 credit line. However, being as a student and approved instantly, what else can you expect.
started working on the 150 bonus!

24 years old
Score is 709
5 hard inquires
Average credit age = 1 year
$500 secured credit card open for 1.5 years (credit used = 5%)
$25000 vehicle loan (had to have co-signer)
I looked into this card because I thought it was time that I get a real credit card with some type of rewards now that I had built up credit with my secured card. I got approved instantly; although, I feel as if my credit line should've been slightly higher given my income. Hoping they will increase it after a year or so but overall it makes sense with my lack of previous credit history.

I am a student. So think though my score looks good, the limit is low because I have no income.

I BKed 10 years ago and Amex was one of those BKed cards. My score is now 690 and I have a few cards like Chase Freedom, Discover IT and Capital One QS all around the $3-4k limit range. I wanted to apply for this card because of the gas and grocery cash back. I was approved for $3k. There has been much speculation about Amex not forgiving folks who have included their cards in a previous BK. But it seems like they forgave me.
