Holy Moly! FirstTech Odyssey Rewards Mastercard

So I've been planning a trip to France and wanted a TRUE Chip + Pin (Online AND Offline) card to make traveling easier.

I've not really wanted to app for another card, but I also wanted to have all my cards age together, so I'm finally DONE! DONE! with app'ing.

 

Approved: FirstTech Odyseey Rewards World Elite Masterard

APR: 11.99% (Lowest they offer)

SL: $50,000.00

 

You'll find me in the garden for the rest of my life. Smiley Happy


Next Up! In the garden forever!

Congrats on the new card and huge SL! Any datapoints you can provide such as inquiries, AAoA, income, etc. you might be willing to share? Finding info on this card like I mentioned before on the garden thread is like pulling teeth lol.

These two datapoints are very interesting to me because I'm trying to plan my next app spree and researching it has me reorganizing which apps get priority over others. Seems like FT doesn't much care for recent pulls/accounts opened which is good in my case; means it can be one of the last ones to app.

 

Had to provide any POI/IV to get that limit?

Re: Holy Moly! FirstTech Odyssey Rewards Mastercard

No kidding @AverageJoesCredit

 

In October I had NO credit or charge cards! I'm not sure why things fell into place, but the 9 years I had no credit taught me to budget, save money and live within my means. I pay in full and have my written budget on my refrigerator door. I'm an outlier as far a datapoints are concerned, and I know it. Those 9 years made sure I had a clean report before I jumped back in the pool with my head screwed on straight.

 

I'm pulling for you too, brother. We'll get there together. Smiley Wink

No POI/IV so far. We'll see if there are any questions from the CU before I get the card. Smiley Happy

Assuming without prying too much your income is 6 figures? Trying to see what I could expect SL wise.

The MAX CL on this card is actually $100,000.00 so I fell in the middle CL for this card if you can believe it! Income $150k
