How to Apply for the Amex Blue Sky Credit Card

The Amex Blue Sky Credit Card is yet another chinsy rewards offering from American Express. With only one rewards feature (1 point per 1$ spent) and only one avenue of redeeming said rewards (travel expenditures) this card barely makes sense. There may be those who’s financial circumstances permit them to travel frequently enough to need a travel rewards card but who are too impoverished to afford a decent travel card or too afraid of commitment to side up with just one travel company’s branded card, and it is for them that we at have created the following application guide.

Read through the Amex Online Privacy Policy before embarking (get it?) on your application to ensure your information is being handled correctly.


All applicants must meet the following requirements in order to successfully apply:

  • Be a US resident (have a valid US street address)
  • Have a valid US SSN
  • Be at least 18 years of age

How to Apply

To start, navigate to the card summary page (shown below) and select the blue apply now link to access the secure application. Also, read the terms and conditions for goodness’ sake.


Step 1- Personal Information

First up: personal information. Enter the following so that Amex can properly identify you:

  • Full name
  • Name on card
  • Email address
  • SSN
  • Date of birth
  • Phone number
  • Home address


Should you want an additional cardholder or two leeching off your account just enter their information here and let the free-loading begin!

Step 2- Financial Information 

Next: Financial information. Enter the following financial info here so Amex can judge your circumstances and give you that punitively-high APR they reserve for the worst of applicants (just kidding, I’m sure you’ll do fine):

  • Employer name
  • Employer city/state
  • Employer phone number
  • Income source
  • Total annual income
  • Bank accounts held
  • Housing status



If it somehow makes your life simpler you may perform a balance transfer (or 4?) at this point in the application.

Step 3- Submission

Submit! Please make sure you read the terms and conditions and understand, exactly, the nature of the contract you are entering into.
