SO I received an invitation in the mail(w/code) to apply last Friday and although I have been gardening and paid down some debt I thought I would give it a shot and was approved with a CL $1500.  Today I decided to roll the dice and call the backdoor number and see if I could be switched from a standard card to the 123 card so she sent off an email for approval and sure enough 20 min later I get the phone call back that it got approved!!! Smiley Happy My first "Prime Card" since back in 05Smiley Sad although its not the greatest limit it feels good to finally get a prime card again...Maybe I can finally cut credit 1 and orchard and their fees.
