Re: Successful App Spree (7 approvals / 2 pending)

OP...WOW! congrats on all the approvals. I only have 6, and all my coworkers thinks thats a lot too...lol. Which, I think i'm pushing it. I want to have maybe 1 more for sure which is the BCE. And POSSIBLY Discover (just so I can call the customer service number and experience their amazing customer service.haha). But having 8 is a bit much for me. 7 MAX.lol.

I think the trick was having a zync and spending a decent amount on it, and never being late, my highest month was around 4k. And I had if for almost 2 years before applying for the bce, got a limit of 7600, on day 61, last week, asked for 20k and got offered 14k








Amex BCE $14k (backdated to 1/11), Chase Freedom $500 (11/2012)

Oh okay. I've had my Green Card for almost a year. My year mark will be in June. My highest was almost the same, I believe around 36 to 3800. Can't wait for when I get approved for the BCE.

Re: Successful App Spree (8 approvals / 1 pending) UPDATED 3/29/13

Yeah, I had no idea that the zync would benefit me so much, I didn't know anything at all about credit when I got it, I was so oblivious to how things worked I didn't even realize it had a rewards program until about six months after opening it, now I was able to get a became with a 14k limit and backdated to 3 months older than my zync, haha I love amex.

Oh trust me I will be going on a closing spree soon on all my smaller cards. Lol. I'll leave one or two though for the sake of my AAoA. Might as well hop on Discover ! No AF & great customer service = might as well, Smiley Very Happy.
