Wow.......caught the bug after six months of using my Amex Zync. I did a little homework on the myfico forums as always, and decided to apply. I figured it wouldn't be the end of the world if it was a soft pull on denial. I called and spoke to a really nice rep, asked a couple of questions and told her to go ahead with my app. I waited 2 minutes and it felt like it took forever. She comes back and says "Congrats on being a platinum member!" I about fell out of my desk chair!
I started this journey about 5 years ago with scores around the mid-400's. Just wanted to thank everybody here at myfico for creating a supportive and well-informed atmosphere to help everybody on their quest for better credit. I'm off to write some goodwill letters. Cheers!
its a nice card, but I hope I never have to travel enough the need it
Thanks everyone! Been working hard at it for a while now. The advice on this forum is great.
Congrats! Hope to have a Platinum one day, once I pay all outstanding debt!
