Approved, approved, approved. This is cool!

Hi there other MyFICOians;

 

In March I app'd for my first CCs in years.  Jared and Kay jewelry cards.  Approved $1K each.

In April app'd for First Premier Mastercard.  Approved $300.

This month (May) app'd for Capital One and Orchard.  Approved $300 each.

 

If it wasn't this site I would not have learned what to do to improve my credit.  

 

Thank you.

Craig

And super congrats OP, btw, on replacing that card with your new Cap One and Orchard.  Very nice work!

Yes, congrats. But from here on out, focus on managing existing CCs and increasing existing CLs. Don't apply for any more department/jewelery store cards.

I would agree with that. 

 

But your app spree is probably over and you'll be looking for a nice 12 months worth of aging.  True?
