Re: what are some of the benefits of a visa signature freedom...

[ Edited ]

The Credit One app was a misstep, like taking ten steps back :smileysad: No more apps, PLEASE especially do not apply for any more bottom feeder fee harvesting cards, you will thank yourself in the long run.Try to get it cancelled and permanently removed from reporting on cbr.

 

Already had Chase and a couple of solid builder accounts, Credit One should not have even been a consideration at all at that point, or ever really. There are always better options, like your Cap1s for e.g.

 

Uderstandable you were apparently going for a dilutional effect- building good accounts to lessen the impact of some neg history, which is a good strategy in general but in rebuilding, starting with up to 3 solid accounts (which you already have) is sufficient. Then garden watching credit profile improve over time before adding more. By doing so, will be granted higher limits and better terms when are again ready to app.

 

FP, Credit One, etc are expensive eye sores on a cbr that will not necessarily preclude an AMEX approval going forward but could bring AMEX pause for the PP reasons.

 

Enroll yourself in "retraining camp" resolving not to finance auto or other purchases beyond current means if wanting to build solid credit for the future and ultimately obtain the 0-1.99% auto financing that can be yours after strenthening profile. It will be well worth the wait.

I just don't see how you expect to get a decent rate with 21 auto lates being reported. It just isn't going to happen unless you've been with your credit union for a long time. Is that loan now paid off? If so I would be begging them to delete the entire tradeline. There is no way you could possibly add another prime card. The lates then the inquiries then your scores is what will prevent it. Its just going to be hard for a lender to take your seriously. On paper you look desperate and can't pay your bills on time.

Re: 65 inquires on equifax and experian, 18 on transunion

OP seems to be going thru appbar syndrome. What you have to do is step back and re-think your situation and how you handle things because how you are doing them now is heading for disaster and quickly. i didn't even see you just got a credit one card...that is such a horrible decision considering what cards you already have. Only thing i can suggest is to stop apping for ANYTHING and spend time reading the stickies and posts on this board to better understand credit and it's benefits. Also, i wouldn't activate that credit one card if you haven't already because it's not gonna benefit you any.

Acura, BMW, Infiniti, Lincoln... Hesse are all luxury brands.  Did you state your income?  Sounds a little excessive.

You should get a share (savings) secured loan at a credit union to build a positive installment loan tradeline.
