American Express BCE approved!!

I am done applying for any more cards!

 

My scorewatch fico was 711 with AAoA at 9 months and oldest TL at 1 year and 4 months with utl. at 2%

 

I am currently a college student working part time and trying to build up my credit.

 

My current cards are:

Wells Fargo college cash back card: 1k limit

Discover more: 1.8k limit

Chase Freedom: 2k limit

Amex BCE: 2.5k limit

 

With the rotating 5% catagories plus the fixed catagories for the AMEX I am set. Time to sit back and relax and let my accounts age and enjoy the rest of college!
