I'm 22, and my account history is 2 years old. My cards were:
Cap One: $0 / 1000
Chase Freedom (Recently converted from slate): $0/1500
Amex Green: ~$3,500 a month, $6,000 'spending limit'
When I applied for the Tiffany Card, I was hoping to get at least $10,000, but $5,000 was the most they'd give me due to the low limits on all of my other cards. They pulled EQ. I maxed out (and will immediately pay off) my CapOne and Chase cards, put $5k on the Tiffany, and threw the remaining ~$9k on the Amex. I had to call AMEX in order for them to approve the expense, but that process took two minutes.
Now I just want to sit tight, pay these cards off and let my balances update to $0.....and then go for the AARP Credit Card.
If only I didn't have to worry about inquires or account age...*sigh*
FAKOS are 727 EX / 727 EQ / 740 TU (I have 9 inquires on my EX, 5 on my EQ and 2 on my TU...so TU is usually a little better)
Congrats! I got it a few months back Its a cool looking card. Also they dont report your credit limit its a charge account so it wont kill your util.
Also I dont know if they did it to you youd have to wait till you get your card but when I was approved they gave me my limit and I charged the max. when the card came my limit was exactly half. Then when I got my bill it had credit limited listed and it was half of what I had charged and actually showed where avail credit was a negative amount. I called them and they told me you can actually card up to double your limit depending on the situation.
