App Spree Results

[ Edited ]

Well I did an elongated App spree over a month.  When I first found this forum I could barely get approved for a store card and now over the last month and a half I've basically completed my wallet. I've been approved for a:



NFCU (credit union and card)

Chase Freedom

Chase Sapphire Preferred



I also have a Chase priority club pending. I'll find out in a few days. I did all of this with average Fico scores thanks to the information and wisdom in this forum. I had to do a lot of reconing and fighting for credit limits, but It was worth it. I have almost 40K of new credit.  Thanks for everything guys.  I'll answer any questions marginal credit candidates have about how I did it. I wouldn't have stood much of a chance getting these cards (Thin credit file, average scores, a baddie, poor utilization) if not for this forum, and I just want to pay it forward.   


Last App March 23, 2015. Gardening until November 25, 2015
Current Score: 766 EX 734 EQ 780 TU 6/30/2015Starting Score/Goal Score: 580s/780s across the board
