APP SPREE YIPEE!!

So I finally tired of paying a ridiculous interest rate on my car loan I decided to bite the bullet and re-fi my car.  I called DCU and they offered a much lower interest rate.  Nice!!!  So since they pulled my report I asked about the Visa.  SCORE!!!  I decided to call my local CU that I also belong to.  DCU wasn't going to finance me for the entire amount of my loan, but my local CU was!  And they approved me for a Visa also!!  So I decided since I was at it to go ahead and see what else I could get approved for

 

 

Approved

 

DCU- $2000

Local CU- $1000

Discover IT-$1200

Barclays-$750

Wal Mart-$700

Chevron-$400

 

Denied

 

Chase

Wells Fargo

Amex

Bof A

Citi

Paypal MC

 

Tried reconning all of the above but no go.  Chase almost said yes,  try again in 6 months with a little bit longer history of on time payments.

 

Well it's a start!!!  I cancelled my FP cards as their AF was about to hit which just left me with Cap 1 and Victoria's secret.

 

So off to the garden I go to nuture my new CC's and hopefully some good growth!!!   Thanks everyone for all the great info in the board.  Couldn't have done it without you!!!

Re: APP SPREE YIPEE!!

 I applied for DCU first.  Then Discover, Chase, Amex, Barclays, walmart, and Chevron was last.  The others I tried after Wal mart but before Chevron.  I went for the cards I wanted most.  My AAoA differs from each credit report.  My oldest 2 tradelines are  from 1993 that report only to Experian and TransUnion.  They both don't report to Equifax for some reason.  So it averages between 3-4 yrs.  2 inq's on each when I started.
