I am astonished.  My App Spree is complete with absolutely no hiccups overall. This feels so great!  Gardening for 6 months really worked!

 

I just applied and was Instantly approved for each of the following:

 

Wednesday - American Express Blue Cash Preferred ($4,500)

Friday - Chase Freedom ($5,000)

Saturday - Citi Forward ($6,500)

 

American Express and Chase both pulled EX, but I'm not sure about Citi yet.

 

Thanks for the help everyone!  Maybe I will go back to the Garden earlier than I expected...

 


Just checked my Experian report again and saw that Citi also pulled EX for its approval. I haven't checked any other reports so I can't confirm if any multi-pulls occurred, but I do know that my EX is up to 5 HPs, with three in under three days. Maybe on my next app spree I will try to find EQ and TU pullers.

Barclays Priceline Rewards Visa 2% pulls TU. :smileywink: :smileylol:  Seriously though, it would go nicely with your other cards.

Re: 3 for 3 on my App Spree!

Haha - love the picture. 

 

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm going to sit tight for a little while. I don't want to worry my creditors by doing too much, too soon and I don't really see any huge gaps in my rewards category at this point. I'll give it a few months and see where these cards take me.
