    I just applied for Optima Platinum over the phone. They told me they would give me a decision in 3 to 4 weeks. I thought they would tell me right there over the phone if I was approved. That worries me. But on the other hand, I bought a car last weekend and while the salesman left me alone in his office I peaked at the credit report he had just printed out and the score was 700+. (Very, very suprised!!!!!!) This of course after almost 4 years of rebuilding my credit. I have a household income of 64,000. Is this enough to qualify for the platinum, and if I am not approved for this one will they offer me any other card product like the green. Thanks for any info.

    Amex will not change an Optima (CREDIT) Application to a Regular CHARGE Card.

    They may possibly bump you down to a Blue, but with your income I doubt it.

    Also once you get your card if it isn't equal to the highest card you have call them up and ask for a increase they usually will match your highest card.

    Actually I found that the Blue card has better terms than the optima card.

    That's why I choose to apply for Blue rather than optima (This was back in March/April)

    Blue is an Optima Card

    I think the terms right now for "Blue" are better as a promotion for the re-launch of this product.

    The Blue card is an Optima Card!

    RE: Blue is an Optima Card

    But the interest rate and terms are not the same!
