Re: BANK OF AMERICA & CHASE WHAT A JERKS

what are your inq's like? aaoa. 

 

if you can wait, do it. 

it will only help you in the long run. 

 

when i first got my walmart card back in july it was an 800 limit and my walmart fico started at 728, obv it went down due to other new cards from apps and util. 

this monh it jumped to 743. with 4 cards reporting and around 750/12k reporting. this is just with gardenining =) 

and yesterday got a cli from the 3k i got last month to 5k.

 

so it has its perks. (gardenining)

I have to take my own advice as well. 

With only an 8 month history they will likely just throw you into a low limit card like they did with me. 

I was around 675 when I apped around 10 months aaoa at the time, and only got a 500 limit on my freedom. Which is ok since I only used it to get the bonus and the gas and restaurants category wasn't bad. But since then hasn't gotten much use. 

 

1% cash back is pretty standard on all my cards that aren't store cards.

Like creditnocash said it will only help you in the long run. You don't want to waste an inq this early unless you're 100% positive that you will be approved.
