Saks (EQ)---I can't remember if it were the 7-10 or 10-30 day notice...haven't heard back yet

In the garden until Aug 2019, when I will try for Citi, Chase, Barclays and Navy Federal again...NFCU told me too many inquiries in May 2017---offered me a secured card, but I didn't pursue it.
Current Scores: EX: 731 EQ: 692 and TU: 654
EQ/T in May was 738/731...drops everytime my private student loans payment plan renews Hoping to refinance after 2 years of business returns in 2019!
Thanks so much. I never thought I would get $25,000 from Penfed and another $16k. I am super excited for not only myself, but my mother and grandmother also. I have been working our credit since May 2015. We are back in the garden though for two years until I am ready to get a mortgage...I also failed to mention that my utilization is at 2%.
Thank you to the forum for all of the positive encouragement and knowledge I have received.
Now that's a spree! Congrats!
Congrats. How many inquires do you have?
I have over 20 on each starting in Apr 2015 when I started to rebuild. I know that is crazy. I am done for 2 years
I recon'd the Citi Platinum AA yesterday and received a message today stating I was approved for $3000. I am off the blacklist and back in with Citi. WooHoo! I am so excited. This really is a great month for me!
Well, I was immediately declined for the Citi AAdvantage Platinum MC. I received the letter yesterday in the mail stating that I was declined for a paid or unpaid collection on my report (Transunion...even though myfico stated they pulled EX). I called the EO number found on this forum...Thank you myfico. I spoke with a very nice gentleman that sent me to Sarah in the credit department of the EO. Sarah was extremely nice. I told her that I would really like the opportunity to prove I am a creditworthy cient to Citi. She said of course, and told me she was sending my application for manual review. I was supposed to hear back by Aug 2nd. I checked my email this morning at 7:40am and saw you've been approved! I am so excited to be back in with Citi. Off the blacklist!!!
Congratulations on your approvals!! See ya in the garden...
