7 CLI'S AND 1 NEW CC APPROVED !!!!

Hello,

2. Bloomingdales: 900... cli to 2000 ( dont know yet if they did a HP) opened nov 2010

3. BOA Acc Amex: 1500....cli to 5000 opened nov 2011

4. BOA Cash rewards: 1500.... cli to 5000 opened nov 2011           (ALL BOA INCREASES WERE 1 HP COMBINED)

Remaining Cards: 

 

9. Chase slate: 3k ( asked for a CLI to 15k I beleive I was approved then denied because the exec office told me to try back after I had the card for a year. And that I have alot of exposure already with my business credit cards through them).... opened in nov 2011

Wow, congrats! What is your income in order to get CLI's that high at that age with such little credit history? I just turned 23 and don't have that big of limits yet and pretty good income for my age and about 3 years aaoa.

Sounds like an overdeveloped roster of cc until able to show a proven track record of managing them effectively/responsibly consider slowing down turbo. Remember credit building at its heart is a marathon not a race but don't have to take my word for it.

Yes you right, I'm slowing down now.. Honestly goal for the next year is build the limits to higher and get rid of some cards.

Currently utility is 0%... overall is 6% that is with my balance from the Amex gold factored in. I try to pay off all my cards before the statements cuts so they always report a 0 balance.
