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 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.
