Card-Smart Tips & Advice
  • Credit: Good credit needed
  • Step by step guide how on to apply without an LLC or C-Corp
  • Amex 90-day rule: In a time span of 90 days, you can only get approved for 2 Amex cards.
  • Max cards: You can only get approved for up to - and including- 5 Amex credit cards (including personal and business), but this rule isn’t always enforced (please note the total of 5 credit cards excludes some Amex cards that are No Preset Spending Limit* cards like the Amex Platinum, Amex Gold, etc)
  • Apply for two cards: If you apply for one Amex card and get approved, it is recommended to apply for a second card since Amex is very good about approving for two cards, even within the same day
  • Not reported on personal credit reports: Amex will not report business credit cards on personal credit reports
  • Credit bureau: Amex will usually pull your Experian credit report
  • Combining same-day credit inquiries: Credit inquiries for same-day applications will be combined, as long as they are both approved for on the same day. Note, for some existing Amex credit cardholders, Amex will not do a hard credit pull when applying for a new credit card at any time
  • Check application status: You can check your application status  here  or call 1 800 567 1083
  • Reconsideration: If declined you can call 1 800 567 1083 to be reconsidered
  • Quickest way to get my card: Amex will sometimes give you an instant credit card number after approval, but not always. Amex physical credit cards cannot be expedited (except for the platinum cards) and will arrive after 5-7 business days
