AMEX & Chase Success!

Just wanted to thank this forum! I started rebuilding my credit in April of this year at 460 and had a bunch of collection accounts after never paying attention to credit or understanding how it works. Fast forward 7 months later and I was approved for a AMEX Gold Reward Card as well as a Chase Freedom 5k Limit. Never thought I'd see the day where I would app and in 30 seconds see an approval screen pop up lol.

 

Thanks for your guys help!

Just these - but I'm thinking about another one since I'll be closing 2 more with AFs attached.  Haven't decided yet.

Thanks! Still can't believe I was able to get my score up 250 points in 7 months. I'm still suprised I got approved though my EQ is 706 but my EX and TU are only in the 660-670 range and I had a bunch of late auto payments a little over a year ago.
