OMG!!!!!! AMEX PRG APPROVED!!!!!!!

OMG HOLY SMOKES!!!!!

 

I applied through the creditcards.com link...it said I was pre-qualified.

 

Tried for BCE right after....

Holy crapballs you guys....I'm so happy I'm literally in tears right now. I was declined for the Unicorn in 2012...but I'm in with AMEX now baby! I've been working on my credit for almost two years now (The 30th will be my 2nd anniversary here, actually!) and I've been looking forward to this moment!!!

 

Got the better sign up bonus of 50K MR points after $1K spend over 3 months...I plan on taking a trip later this year and this would work out perfectly....

 

ETA: I know creditcards.com uses TU for their soft...so I'm not sure if AMEX did as well (would have to order a copy of TU report to check). There's definitely a pull for AMEX on EX - hopefully I didn't screw myself and get double pulled!

 

TU score is 645 - UTIL around 22%. An old CO, an old collection and 2 satisfied judgments are on TU as well. AAOA around 2.5 years. EX is a bit higher....

 

Woot!

Congrats on this! I feel you on your joy, as I felt extreme emotions when I was approved for my first AMEX Charge card and Revolver shortly afterwards.
