Congratulations. I'm really suprised that you got approved, I mean your scores are good but not great. You know whats weird is I got denied last week for a AMEX Blue Cash with scores in the mid 700's. Oh well I guess AMEX is just picky.

Amex has lowered the score standards for their cards. I got approved for this card in April and I had the exact same scores. So, its not a surprise he got approved with scores in the high 600's. In the new economy high 600's are the new high 700's of the earlier years.

@ Derek,

American Express has lower standards for charge cards, as the card member is responsible for paying in full each month. Grayson may have also had higher income and/or longer history.
