Amex approved for self employed below 600k. Detailed post below

So recently I was looking to add Mrcc amex to my cc collection.

I looked through every forum and everyone said that it is very difficult for self employed folks below 6 lakhs of income to get any Amex card.

I decided to push my luck and applied through a random referral link because in case my card was approved, I’d have to pay less amount of renewal fee and card would be FYF

My ITR is just shy of 4 lakhs because self employed folks are allowed to show expenses for their business. However, while filling the form, I added the threshold of 6-8 lakhs as my income threshold.

The application got submitted and I got a vkyc link.

During vkyc, they asked for my Pan and asked me to make sure the my adhar was not visible.

After that I was expecting a link to upload income documents but the very next day i got an email stating my APPLICATION WAS APPROVED and I’ll receive the card within 3-7 days.

After two days I got my card.

P.S: My cibil is 781 and I have around 10ccs with 100% repayment history so that might’ve helped me.

So if you’re self employed and want to push your luck for Amex, give it a shot. What do you have to lose? As long as you’re not taking a loan in the coming months, an enquiry shouldn’t matter and 100% repayment  history is what matters.

Make sure to apply via a referral link to save on annual and renewal fees.

You can DM me for my referral or use someone else’s if you want.

Let's just say you got incredibly lucky. Congrats

I am sitting ducks on 15 year old credit history, cibil @ 794. Been applying since 2017. Rejection might have to do with my total credit limit (43L/3 cards) Vis-a-vis income of around 5 L.

Read many threads regarding Amex easy approvals on other communities as well. They are giving cards on just vkyc. Points to remember is Eligible pincodes, excellent cibil score and payment history. They are also expanding and adding new cities in their eligibile areas.

PS: I haven't applied yet as less acceptance and not useful for me.

If you pay bills of around 6k pm then you can get the Mrcc card and get 1500x4 amazon gc using Amex reward multiplier portal.

You will get 1000MR points on doing the 1500x4 transaction plus 2x points on the 6000 which is around 240. And Amex points never expire so you can save it to later use it on Taj voucher reward redemption for their 18k and 24k points category or amazon vouchers.
