Let me add i just finished with my credit union like 5 minutes ago refinancing my auto loan from 16% to 1.98% and taking 9 months off the loan! Payemnt went from 284 - 244. Sorry if im bragging im just very happy!


Great job!  You're going to save a lot of money.  That's the whole idea of having good credit, if you show some responsibility then companies will be happy to do business with you at a low cost.  I can't wait until I can get a rate like that!


In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $22.200, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Chase CSP (4/14) $12,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $9,600, Chase Freedom (12/12) $5,000

Re: CANT BELIEVE IT!!!

Congrats!

 

I just got that card about 8 mo ago. Same CL as you. 2k. I was really surprised they gave me that much cause my my highest CL was 1k at the time. Then just after 60 days I used the wonderful CLI button on the website and BAM! 6k CL!! So yea I love me some AMEX!

 

I did just app for the starwood card the other day just to try cause I knew i was going to go into gardening mode and not app for anything for a while. I was dennied. Which I kind of expected. Got the letter today. It highlighted my age of AMEX account (8 mo's), the amount of my payments for my current BCE (since im in the intro 0% APR period I've not payed in full every month or even close to it.) and the number of inquiries (3). Thought this info may be helpful to those wanting a second AMEX card.

 

I'm very glad I got an AMEX as my second real card. Enjoy!

 

Don't forget to hit "THE BUTTON" on day 61. They don't even do a hard pull at that time they just use your previous pull and I think maybe do a soft pull. So don't srew up :smileyhappy:

From no credit to EQ 747 in 16 months using info from these forums!

Chase Freedom 3k, Chase Slate 5k, Chase Sapphire Preferred 6.4K Amex Blue Cash 9k, Discover More 5K, Citi Simplicity 3.2k
