First App Spree Results!!

Hey all! I just wanted to share the results of my app spree after being in the garden for a year. I have been lurking on this board for a while and have learned so much so thanks to everyone who shares their knowledge!

 

Here is what I had before the spree:

 

Discover It: 550/3900

Citi Platinum Select Visa: 0/1200

US Bank Platinum Visa: 0/1500

GEMB Discount Tire: 0/800

 

I also just paid off a loan for a motorcycle and about $3000 of CC debt a couple months ago. My EQ score jumped from 683 to 762 after this which I thought was crazy. Staying in the garden and lowering my utilization really makes a dramatic difference I guess.

 

Here is what I applied for:

 

AMEX BCE: Approved, $8000

US Bank Cash+: Approved, $8500

Unitus Platinum Rewards: Approved, $8000

Barclays Rewards Mastercard: Approved, $6300

BoA 1-2-3: Approved, unknown limit

Walmart Discover: Approved, $1900

Chase Freedom: Awaiting results

 

I'm not sure why Chase would take longer than all of those other banks, but I'm hoping I get it. Now I don't really know what my next steps are.... I guess its back to the garden for a while!

Congrats nice card nice limits...

You should have no problem gardening look at what it just got you.Smiley Wink

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?
