Re: Successful App Spree (8 approvals / 1 pending)

Congrats! Have you calculated your AAOA? I'm curious to know what affect that many accounts opened at once affects credit scores? Would you mind letting us know once they all hit your reports?

Congrats, but  why do you need 3 Amex Card, and Barclay is notorious for AA when they find out too many new account. Good luck

questions is why do you need more than 2-3 credit cards in total? You don't, but they're like Pokemon you gotta collect them all =)

 

in all seriousness.

 

1. sign up bonuses

2. cause he can

3. backdating possibility he did state 1 AU account

4. cause Amex brings all the girls to the yard , they're like it's better than yours (discover)


total credit limits $108,400 Credit scores Ex 728 EQ 738 TU 758

Thanks ! Not yet. I will for sure update this thread once I know a solid age. I don't look forward to seeing what my new AAoa is, :smileyfrustrated:.

 

But I'll be fine since I'm only 22. If I keep all of these new prime cards in good standing, by the time I'm in my 30's I'll have 7+ years of history with them, :smileyvery-happy:.

BCP - 6% / 3% / 3%. I spend about $500+ a month on groceries, $100+ a week on gas, & GF splurges a lot @ Nordstroms.

 

PRG - So I, "have," to pay the whole thing & not carry a balance. I've gotten into a lazy habit of using my own money to pay off my CC's minimum balance & then transfer my reimbursement $$$ on the next weekend or something to pay off the whole thing.

 

SPG - 25,000 bonus points & because it looks awesome !

 

Ring - 8% APR if I ever need to carry a balance after my 18 months with the Diamond Preferred is up. I never usually carry a balance that's my own but I like having the luxury.

 

Not really worried about Barclay's AA. I opened 6 other accounts at the same time I opened up my Barclay Apple card 2+ years ago & didn't hear a peep from them.
