I have heard of people reporting that they have been declined, but it is sometimes due to being blacklisted by AMEX for prior unpaid CO accounts.

Can I get another Amex card?

Can I get a replacement credit card with the same number?
If your card — or your card data — is ever lost, stolen or compromised, you’ll probably get a new card with a new number on it. That keeps the old card number from being used fraudulently.
