    Adam is such a massive troll.

    "That's borderline racist!"

    That would be a better question for Amazon.

    Unfortunately, there's no way to find out. Amazon uses a proprietary method to determine who to accept and who not to accept. The link above in the first post has some insight but that's about the best we've got.

    That turns out to be a pretty good post by Panos, one of the best on the topic. I recognize him from doing some of his hits, and the post seems pretty thoughtful. My guess is that if you are American and already have an Amazon account with some degree of active use, you'll probably get approved. Anything else is iffy. Odds may be in your favor, but it's iffy.

    Well, I'm a US citizen, have been buying from Amazon since 1997 (Oct to be precise, I just looked it up :), holding an Amazon CC for at least 8+ years in good standing, currently Amazon Prime member and still buying a lot of things from them regularly without any sort of problems in the 20 years. Credit rating 800+ - full time employed as a U Prof. Also denied without any reason, seems quite arbitrary.
