US BANK cash+

So I have trouble with gardening and I enjoy filling in apps but not fully submitting. I know, it's strange but it helps fight the urge to apply for every card that's out there. I was messing around on the U.S. Bank site and had been thinking about the cash+ card so I figured I'd fill it out and go through a few pages of the app and then back out like normal. I filled in the first page and it said I was at 60% completion for the app (it showed that there were 3 more steps to complete) so I clicked continue. After that I got a text from wallethub monitoring that U.S. Bank had pulled my TU report. Oops.... Anyway, the next page had their offer of a 15K credit limit so I figured I might as well accept it and was instantly approved. I can't remember the APR listed but it was pretty low.

 

 Data:

They seem to pull TU for me (smaller ones they like to pull or on ice), TU FICO 8 is 753, AAoA 3.7yrs, 16 inq last 12 months, lots of new accounts, and 1% utility. I have a checking and savings with them, which I was told by a local rep there that it helps with approvals. I was denied this card in February before I had a relationship with them.

Scores 01/04/2017: EQ 719, TU 750, EX 716
Goal scores: 740 across the board

Congrats!!! That's a nice limit! Us bank has been very accepting lately from my experience and my scores are a bit lower than yours. They really like TU here in IL.

Re: US BANK cash+

My tu FICO 04 is higher than my 08, so your score might be even better than you think. I was able to get 3 us bank instant approvals in one day, I was shocked! Enjoy! Smiley Happy

i've had a checking account with them for almost a year. ive applied several times in the past with a better profile and always declined. i was still declined the cash plus but approved flex perks amex, club carlson, rei world mastercard and a few others.

The local rep is a friend of mine and told me they really prefer you to have a relationship with them other than just cc. I know people get approved without it but I think it really does help. It's the only reason I can see why they'd approve me now and not the last app. I'll stick with the cash+ for now.... Stop trying to tempt me LOL Smiley Happy
