Amazon Approved!

[ Edited ]

I was ordering a few things today and during checkout I decided to go ahead and try for the Amazon store card again. I applied for it when I app'd for the Walmart card a few months ago and was declined. 

 

I guess gardening does payoff...Walmart approved me with a TU FICO of 608 with only a $150 limit a few months ago, and after waiting a few months and letting my score increase by over 50pts Amazon approved me today with a limit of $700. 

 

I may try for the Lowe's card. (I really need/want it).
