So, I decided to go ahead and take the plunge to apply for a store charge card. I like the clothes at Kohl's and figure I could use it there a decent amount.
I was approved instantly online which was a good feeling. I haven't applied for anything since June of last year. Hopefully this should help my scores out.
Congrats! I like Kohl's, and you get great insider deals with their card. I'll start the rush by asking you to let us know your CL when you find out, and which CRA they pulled.
You do realize that the 3/13 EX score you listed can't be a FICO, right? Unless you belong to that Pennsylvania credit union or have been mortgage shopping.
Sorry, by EX I meant EQ instead. I just wasn't paying too close attention when I was typing. I looked at Creditboards Pulls database and it looks like they pull Experian for those living in Wisconsin. Last month or January when I checked Experian I was at 662. However, I don't know for sure it was Experian but that's my educated guess.
The CL is only $300, but that's really all I need. I don't spend a ton of money on clothes and pay things off in full anyways.
