App Spree...

Ok so heres the deal, went to go buy myself a new MacBook Pro with Retina at BestBuy on saturday, and when I got there the gentleman asked if I wanted to apply for the 0% financing. I was not planning on applying but I was paying about 2500 for the computer so I figured why not.

 

I was approved for $1000, 0% store card for first 18 months.

 

After apping for that I figured why not throw a couple more out there, apped for Capital One, approved for $300 limit (this sucks!). Apped for Discover IT, was approved but I do not know the limit as of yet, (will update!). Lastly I apped for Wal-Mart CC so I can utilize the free tansunion report once a month, they gave me the good old 7-10 business day response, I think the message said something about verification, so I will update on this as well.

 

Scores for Tansunion and Equifax were floating around 630-640 (only reason they are so low is mix up about student loan repayment caused 90 lates on 2 separate accounts, OUCH!) last I checked, not sure about experian. AAoA is around 1 year 6 months. Income is around 30k. Currently have 2 credit cards, one with Credit One (at time of application thought it was Capital One lol how wrong I was) limit of 400, and NASA FCU Visa Platinum Secured Card for $500.

 

I will be calling for credit limit increases on the 3 cards approved so far. Didnt plan on apping for anything else, but any suggestions are welcome! Additonally I work at NASAFCU so any questions about lending/CCs or anything for them I can generally answer.

Congrats on the approvals! However, the Barclay AA bear doesn't like getting poked :smileylol: Therfore, I recommend you go into the garden at once and hope that when these new accounts start reporting the bear doesn't eat you :smileysurprised:

 


Edit: Lack of sleep + Assumption = Disregard Barclay comment and continue the happy dance.

Well not 100% sure but nowhere on the application did I put I was a student, although I currently am a fulltime student and fulltime employment. So pretty sure it was the regular one.
