Approved for Amex premier rewards gold

Finally.

yesterday i finally hit 6 months credit history reported on my Experian report

and gave it a shot and was instantly approved.

 

2 days ago I also got my first TU Walmart FICO and was on 714

 

my next step is buying a car. Will I be ok on a car loan in 2 months?

Congrats on your approval, that's great!
Nice TU score as well.

As for the car loan, are you a member of a credit union?

That's awesome congratulations! 

Car loans are a totally different animal... they usually use an auto enhanced FICO, rather than a regular FICO.   You would probably get a better rate from a credit union based off of your real FICO than your auto enhanced one, unless you have some installment history on your report (student loans don't typically count).

 

To learn more about Auto enhanced Fico scores,  please check out this very informative thread by fused:

Again, Congrats on the approval, and good luck!

Re: Approved for Amex premier rewards gold

DCU has very high member reviews for their Auto Loans program, and their rates are at 1.99%, which are great! 

 

I think you should use them for your auto needs.

In the Garden until at least 2014 to let the new accounts age and HP's fall off. 800 club here I come...
