Even the ones that you may have now, but it wasnt easy.:smileywink:
For me it is GEMB and CITI. Come on dont be shy list them...

Re: Difficult Ones

For me it's Discover and AMEX. I've applied to both and got turned down by both. Chase comes in at # 3 on my list for some reason. And that's where I do alllllll my banking.

I think anyone with what I call "fatal baddies" can in no way get either one of those 2 cards.

When all 3 of my FICO scores exceed 720 on a consistent basis, then I might consider app'ing.

Re: Difficult Ones

hi dallas! I'm in arlington. :smileyhappy:

Just my definition of fatal baddies: BK, Collection, Judgment, Tax Lien, Charge Off.

Fatal in the sense that any one of them can cause your scores into a serious nosedive. Not permanent, if taken care of.

Re: Difficult Ones

For me it's AMEX.  I tried to get a Blue Card once but was declined.  I'm not sure of my scores then as it was years ago.  I haven't tried since.

Re: Difficult Ones

Not so long ago they were all difficult.
 
Now I can probably get anything that does not pull EX  :smileyvery-happy: (over 100 points lower than the others at this point in time)

And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid
