GE Money Bank

Hello All!

 

I've been reading these boards for quite some time as I work on building my own credit. As of last year around this time my scores were in the 500's with no credit and lots of collections. I hired someone that was recommended by my realtor that has helped me by writing letters and getting almost all of the collections off my credit. Right now my TU Fico is 725 according to Walmart. I just wanted to let everyone know how good GE Money Bank has been to me. I started with a secured Capitol One last July and in Oct I got approved for Walmart Discover $2500 limit. They auto increased it to $3000 in January. Yesterday I applied for the Sam's Discover and was approved for $1800 and the Old Navy Visa for $1000. I've also had luck with pre-approvals at checkout with Buckle, Express, ShopNBC and VS. I cannot believe how far I have come in less than a year!

 

Just thought I would share a little luck of my own... :smileyhappy:
