Q: Can I get approved for an American Express credit or charge card if I had a bankruptcy three years ago?
American Express is a CardRatings.com advertiser.
But you are on the right track; the three-year point does offer one of the first time periods after bankruptcy for a better evaluation of your score. Adding to all of the above, please realize credit extension has become far more difficult in the current economy. All you can do is try. However, if this will be your line of credit since the bankruptcy, you might want to think about applying for a good secured credit card first. Use it wisely for a year or so, then apply for an American Express card.
