Re: Apply for CSP or garden?

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to apply as soon as my Citi card reports the $10k limit. Right now it is still reporting a $6k limit (got the increase a few weeks ago).

Shorefox, I think you should pull your FICO scores for TU and EQ before applying. If you're credit score isn't reporting in the 740~ range you may want to wait a bit longer.

TU 743 as of 5/12
EQ 715 as of 10/13
EX Plus 780 as of 7/12

Cards in wallet: Chase Sapphire Preferred ($25k) Chase Freedom (8k) NFCU Platinum ($24k) HHonors Reserve ($11k)
United MileagePlus Club ($17k)

Good advice. As soon as my Citi reports as $10k, I will pull my 2 fico's before applying. My EX from my recent AMEX approval was 737..not quite 740, but almost there.
