Re: Almost there...

What was your score

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: Almost there...

I think you need at least 720. 641 is borderline approval for their charge card.

Re: Almost there...

when you have 246 open accounts and an AAoA of .25 months, your score is going to take a hit like that for a little while longer.

246 OPEN accounts?! HOW?
Paying those bills and sorting out those statements alone is like a full time job. Smiley Very Happy
