OMG.. PENFED 9K APPROVAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ALMOST SPIT MY COFFEE OUT!!

 

So earlier I posted in the rebuilding forum about my many recent denials since rebuilding.

 

I decided to open up another savings account for my daughter today and had no intention of applying for anything. After being asked by the rep if I wanted to app for anything, I said "sure why not".., since I was about to hit the garden for about a year I figured may as well give it one last shot. He added all my info and said "hold on while I get a LO to view your app" followed by "nevermind, you got instant approval 9K @ 14.49" !! Let's say I was beyond shocked.

 

this may not be a big deal to most, but this is my first Major CC

Re: OMG.. PENFED 9K APPROVAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May I ask how you managed to raise your scores so quickly? I started by rebuild around the same time you did with around the same scores, and I'm stuck right at the 600 mark on all my scores (slightly above or below). I've been denied for everything under the sun. LOL
