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!!! My first "Prime Card" since back in 05 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.
EQ - 625
Ex - Not sure
TU - 580 in Jan before I paid down my debt($2700)
Just wanted to share

Wow, congratulations! Good idea to call back and request the switch as it never hurts to try.
Feels good, right?!
