Anyone ever received a real amex with a BK showing?

So, I am four years post-bk, and really, really would like an Amex Green card.

 

Currently, I am an AU on my SO's Amex Gold Preferred backdated to 1989, I have the BOA Accelerated Rewards Amex (a conversion from my original BOA secured Visa) and have managed to wheedle my way into both a Chase Freedom card and a Discover More card (two cards typically denied with a bk showing). However, getting my very own true Amex has been a no-go. Flat out denied for only one reason: Bankruptcy.

 

So, my question is this: has anyone here ever received an Amex with their BK still reporting? And, if so, how long post-BK?

 

Also, Amex was not included in the bankruptcy and I have all positive tradelines since my discharge.

I've seen a couple of threads where people have received an AMEX, but they have had a prior relationship with them.

 

Most of the other BK Amex cards have been co-branded.

You'll have to settle for co-branded until the BK drops off.

From the all of the anecdotal evidence about AMEX, they are just not BK friendly.

Charge-offs are much more acceptable to them.

I was approved for 3 Amex's last year. 9 years post BK and it was still on my EX report.

 

Skymiles

Zync

Premier Rewards Gold.

 

Couldn't get a CLI though on the Skymiles until just recently when the BK fell off.

I definitely would like an Amex Zync to back date it to my first card, but my BK is only 2 yrs since filing and 1.5 since discharge.

 

I'd be very interested to hear of any success stories with a BK showing.
