APPROVED Amex ZYNC & Discover Student more card

I was approved for my first credit card in February - CapitalOne Secured 250$ CL.......CLI to 350$ 5 months in.

The following month I applied for a store card & was approved AmericanEagle 700$ CL

 I am a 22 Y/o College student..

I started applying to all the main card companies for student cards, etc. ALL denied.

I entered the garden until my 7th statement came out which would give me my established credit of 6 months. I waited till it was reported to the bureau and my CK score said 670.

 

Amex - 200$ CL, had the 500$ Autopay option.

Discover Student - 500$

 

Back to the garden....

Congrats!!

Take care of AMEX / Discover, they will grow nicely with you. AMEX you may have to app for a better account because the hard limit does not go away apparently, but with good history you'll get what you really want then.

Re: APPROVED Amex ZYNC & Discover Student more card

Currently I got the Cap1  Secure CL $451, and AU from Cap 1 Plat CL $750, AU Chase CL $7,000.

 

My wife is Cap 1 Plat CL $ 750, Orcha Plat $ CL 300. The thing is that her credit score is below 700, but shes getting offer from AMEX.

 

First one came is the Gold one, or the charge card. We ignore it and it came again, and we still ignore it. Now the Green one came, =D. I wonder if we keep ignor it will they offer something better. BTW I'm not allowing my wife to get a new card untill 1 year pass since we're both almost at 7-8 hard inquire.

 

O, and Congrat =D.

Just wanted to get my foot in the door for now, in no rush now that I'm hanging out in their living room ;-)
