My plan was to only apply for a card that will give me a decent limit so I can do a balance transfer.... I ended up applying for 3 cards cause the first two were declined...
Citi TYP: denied cause of too many inquiries.. but approved after calling to get it manually reviewed... I ended up talking to a supervisor (she didn't sound pleasant) but approved me for $2k!..
.... can I still ask for a limit increase once I get the card? or should I just leave it at that and wait 3-6 months...
Barclays Rewards Mastercard: denied.. called backdoor and the guy said he can't approve me since I have 10+ new accounts the past year....
DCU platinum visa: Instantly approved for $7.5k!... I'm not a member yet, so I don't know how this would work... It only asked me to provide proof of paystub and nothing about being a member..... anyone else got approved instantly for this card?? what else did they need?? I remember applying for this before but i didn't get approve instantly ... they emailed me and asked to be member but I got denied for membership .....am trying again and am really crossing my fingers on this one.....
I got all the cards I wanted.. my wish list is complete ...... well, CSP is still on my list but I don't think I really need anymore card for now....
