Wooo, approved for Amex BCE

[ Edited ]

I'm pretty excited right now. I app'd for BCE on Thursday and its been pending until tonight (Tuesday). I've been checking the status like 10 times a day lol. I called them up earlier today to inquire about it, verified some info and they said they'd give me a call in a few days. Well, a bit later I checked and I was approved!

 

I'm apart of Amex blue now! My only other credit card is some lame $750 CL Capital One Platinum card that I've had since I was 18 (I'm 21 now). I thought they might deny me because my income is only $20k a year but I'm relieved they didn't. I haven't checked my credit scores lately but last I saw was that one of my scores was 793 and another one was like 748. I've also had 3 car loans that I've paid off several years early so that might have been beneficial as well.

 

Woot! I think I'll apply for Chase Freedom next but the Amex will be my main card. Tomorrow, I'll have to call and see what my Amex CL is.
