App Spree, Citi loves me

Decided to try my luck on a few cards. My profile: Scores all around 715. AAoA 4 months. Longest account 1 year. Util: 10%. No Baddies. Prefect payment history. 21 Years old. Income 42k. 


Walmart Card: Instant 1k

Chase Freedom: Instant 500

Amex Hilton Honors: Denied SP

Citi Thank You Preffered: Called in to verify phone number: 3500 CL. My highest. Love those guys!

Chase Amazon Visa: Pending

 

The only card I really want now is the CSP but that's a ways off. 

 

Proud of my credit file and will hopefully be near 800 in a year or so.

Not to burst your bubble, but unless you get a few 30 year old accounts added to your file you'll definately not get a 800 ina  year. Even the Fico president did not have a 800. 

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqfR46obY1U  CEO of Fico here stated you can not get a perfect score til your "40's something" and the earliest I've ever seen a 800 score was with 12 years of history with a Average age of accounts of 12 years.

 

Also majority of lenders primarily pull Fico 04 scores, and in the 04 scores no one has EVER reported a perfect score. Only in Fico 08 it's possible.

"Near" 800. Like 760-780.

WOW that neat! and these are cards under your name right/ Or are you an AU. Either way you have excellent cards, and a excellent credit report.

 added to my moms Sears Platinum Master Card which has a $1,500 CL which required my ssn number so it should be reporting. I now have to wait at least 6 months so I can pull my first credit report :smileyhappy:

 

 


Not true if your added as an AU you'll instantly get a credit score. Once it reports as long as the card that was added in your name has 6+ months of history.

Re: App Spree, Citi loves me

@distantarray Realy!?! Ive tryed on myfico.com but it says something call to verify. I called once bu the lady on the phone just asked my do you have any cards and i said "NO" so she said then thats why their is no credit reprot nor score. Then goodbye and hung up. SOO that why im assuming that at leat 6 months should pass until i can see credit reprot and score. What should i say when I CALL TO VERIFY?
