Re: Advice needed

Great job on your rebuild! I'm hopeful to hit 700 on TU and EQ this month and I've been rebuilding for a year and a half!  

 

Good luck, whatever you decide to do!

You guys are great!  I think I am going to garden awhile.  (Who knows though...I might end up losing self control as I have so often lately!) 

Thanks for the advice on the AMEX.  I am hoping to see a 3x CLI, but I am worried because I read a post earlier where someone said that when they start you off that low, it doesn't usually get the 3x.  Thank you again for all of the replies!

 

 


I have had my AMEX now for almost a year with a $1K SL with no CLIs approved.  Don't get discouraged, at least your foot is in the door.

Every profile is different, a friend started with Amex and Disco at $1,000. 3 months later they are at $3,000 and $2,500. I told him just to get those 2 to start building, then wait until the summer for his next app.
