Re: Easiest visa/mc to get??

Welcome to the forum 

More info needed to better help 

AAoA, INQ's in last year, How long have you had the cards, what do you spend the most on, Travel or cash back card, other loans car mortgage and any baddies?

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

if you have all those cards you need NO MORE to build a strong history and score to qualify for amex and big cards this year depending what is holding you down... is it all your new accounts? short history? or do you have baddies?

Re: Easiest visa/mc to get??

I have had my CapOne for 8 years, and my Kay for about the same. I have several good paid off installment loans and a few good car loans paid off. Only one 30day late payment two years ago. I have a few baddies I am working on too (collections for med bills, and two charge offs) but I have gone from a low 500s to a 626 ish in the past few months. I need to get my utilization rate down ALOT. That is what I am working on now. AAoA is 5 years, with 14 being the oldest and BRAND NEW being the shortest.

Hello!  Welcome to the forums!  I would suggest that you hold off on applying for new cards and garden for a while and let your new accounts age, while thats happening pay down your balances and get your utilization under control.  I would take a look into the Rebuilding Your Credit Section of the forums to see how to write GW (goodwill letters) for your late payments, and maybe some PFD (pay for deletes).  The Rebuilding Your Credit section of the forums helped me out tremendously last year!  Good luck on your journey and I hope you stick to your goals, soak up all the knowledge here on the boards...

Good advice here OP.   Working on those negative items will be a benefit in the long term as you rebuild your profile.
