I want one really bad. Must stay on target. Would love to get BCP, but I think BCE is easier to get. I want to get approved, not denied. :smileysurprised:

Re: For those in Garden - A New Hope

These are my targeted cards for after refi in June. They are the ones I can use and fit my spending patterns and where I expect to be credit scorewise in 6 months. There are some other outstanding cards that ill not be able to get in June due to deroga on my report.

But with that being said, these cards are generally rated and reviewed highly and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.


Starting Score: EQ 551 TU 548 CK 607on 6/8/12, EX 542(AMEX pull 3/4/12)
Current Score: EQ 710 TU 727 EX 704 CK 719(FAKO-EX 697, EQ 697, TU 697)
Goal Score: 750

I have one of the BLUE cards, they look AWESOME at first, then wear fast :smileysad:    They're actually mostly clear for those that might not know. 

 

I applied over the phone and the young lady didn't seem to think I'd have a problem getting BCP but I told her the plain "BLUE" was fine, she said I could PC the BLUE to BCP later without a pull after 13 months, or apply for BCP later if I wanted.
