Your American Express Green Card approval odds are best with a 700+ credit score and proof of a steady income. American Express will also take into account your payment history, particularly if you have other Amex accounts; outstanding debt and any recent credit inquiries. The higher your overall credit profile, the better your odds of approval.
To get a better idea of your Amex Green Card odds, consider using the Amex online pre-qualification tool. Just enter your name, address, annual income, and the last 4 digits of your Social Security number, and you’ll see all the Amex cards with the highest approval odds. If you see the Amex Green card, that means you’ll have a very good chance of getting approved. Pre-qualification isn’t a guarantee of approval, as you will still have to apply. Bear in mind, though, that there is a slight chance your application could be denied.
I had a credit score of 670 and was approved for 2 American Express cards.
