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.

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!!!
