Credit Record Needed:
Based on the FICO score recommendation, applicants should have a fairly solid credit record, with no recent negative marks on their report. A FICO credit score of 648 is recommended for a higher chance of approval, but this is not required. There are a number of other factors that this issuer may also consider when making decisions for approval. While your FICO score is usually a very important factor, you may want to consider other areas that may affect a decision for approval. For example, your debt to income ratio, recent credit inquiries, 30+ day delinquencies, or current credit accounts nearing the maximum amount may affect a credit decision.

FICO scores/credit scores are used to represent the creditworthiness of a person and may be one indicator to the credit type you are eligible for. However, a credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any American Express product.

Other Basics:
American Express acceptance among businesses is moderate, but global. You should not have a difficult time finding businesses that will accept this card as a form of payment.

Our Editor's Commentary:
If you're looking for a travel rewards credit card - and pay off charges each month, this card may be of interest if you don't have excellent credit.

The annual fee is a bit large, however depending on your rewards redemption amount, it could pay off.

Overall, if you're trying to get your foot in the door with Amex, want travel rewards, and don't have a great credit history - then this could be a nice fit.
