Can anybody post there scores, baddies, util, etc while still getting approved? I am planning on opening at my local CU in a week but would def. consider this as I am a member of my daughter's PTA.

What is the nature of this concern that some people have over the CCC's of their already existing accounts getting nervous if you suddenly got a card from a CU? That they might raise their rates, cut your credit limits, etc? Or is it too many cards too soon that might make them figure you're about to pull an all around binge with full intent on defaulting on it all? Or that it's a question of competition between institutions? Has anyone reported any negative behavior from CCC's afterwards? Please state your circumstances that may give you cause for such concern.

So I decided to try my luck to get a 5K credit card from Alliant and I was approved!! Woo hoo! I plan to use it here and there to keep on building my credit. I hope to one day make the 800 club!!
That's it, I am done applying for a long while now!

We joined Alliant and they pulled EQ. Received the Membership without a problem but received no offers of credit. EQ being my lowest at 680 along with EX at 715 (Fako) and TU at 697. Called and spoke with a Loan officer and was told that with a 680 I would probably get a credit limit at about $1500.00. About 3 weeks later I called back after reading numerous posts and asked more questions and also spoke to an analyst. They explained that there is much more to the review than your score. To make a long conversation about Alliant short I went and applied for a CC. It was another hard pull but resulted in an approval and a nice $7500 limit along with an additional offer for a new car loan at 6.1%. I had below 10% utilization and my credit card limits were both below $1500.00. While I was not asked for my income verification for the CC I was told they needed it if I wanted to proceed with the car. Still thinking that over as we have a month to let them know without an additional pull.
