MY CREDIT CARD SUCCESS.....owed to you guys...CSP in sights next year

Hey guys

 

A little back story ,in November of 2011 I started my rebuilding from a BK7 in 2005.....In the past year + ,I have manged to get my scores into the low 700 and I do believe I am in primeville somewhat.

 

I have managed to secure some of my most sought after cards for me and I owe in great part to all the members advice and opinions on this forum..

 

In November I recieved  my coveted Amex Green,Discover IT, BCP and Delta Gold Skymiles.....I just reached the 61 day CLI date and was moved from 5000CL to 6500CL on my Delta Gold.   Happy Dance!!!!!

 

 

My history is this:

 

AAoA is around 5.4 yrs

Inquiry heavy from my November app spree...about 10 on EQ ,5 on EXP and 6 on TU

my cc are in Siggy

Overall Utility is  17% currently

 

I am trying to stay in garden till 2014 ,The only cards I want (NOT NEED) to round things out are..... Chase Sapphire Preffered or Chase Sapphire (I bank with chase) and or maybe the Citi Forward card for the cash back...

 

What do you think my chances are for late this year on these cards?

 

Thanks again

Congrats! Chase seemed to be inquiry sensitive to me. I had a couple of failed recon attempts for the Freedom mid summer. They were concerned with my recent build up of credit. That being said they approved me for the CSP in September. I would probably still suggest waiting until the end of the year at the earliest to apply.
