Re: Equifax fico + BCP

I have some questions on the application.

 

Under employment, I am full time employed, but should I also indicate I am a student?

 

I live at home with my parents and do not pay rent/ morgtage. How should I indicate this on the application?

I have the Zync card, and I don't remember the exact AMEX application, but generally I put my rent/mortgage at $0 because it's covered under my scholarships. Even though my rent payment is technically $550, I don't put that on there because then they'd think that I have to pay that out of my part time income, which I don't. Speaking in general, I put employment as "student" and in the income section list income from my job...some application ask for the source, others don't. If they ask for a source I just put part time job. 

 

I think it's important to note somewhere in the application that I'm a student (if it's not strictly a student card) to explain my low income and stuff.

- More important

- Less important (since you can play the CLI game with AmEx)

 

Congrats!

Yeah I clicked Rent and it did not ask for an amount. I indicated employed student, because it is the most accurate description. It approved it now so I have no regrets.

Re: Equifax fico + BCP

Would app for zync and then bc directly after. That's the method I took. One inquiry and approved after verifying address. I had 730 FICO and zync green and gold under offers. After being approved for bcp I cancelled the zync app as I didn't want it.
