Re: Garden Club Meeting - May 2013

Hi everyone! Glad to hear everyone is sticking to their gardening goals. Everyone is sounding very focused and it's certainly inspiring amidst all of the approval posts. It sure was hard to get through the workday after a long weekend. I felt like a zombie today. A small goal for me to look forward to is payday on Friday so that I can put a big dent in my CCs. Also, come June 9th, my inqs from Amex last year will be 1 y.o. I can definitely make it at least until then! 😜

Re: Garden Club Meeting - May 2013

I received an email earlier from AMEX inviting me to apply for the AMEX PRG, which is the card I'm gardening for. I know I probably have a good chance of approval because I'll have 11 months of credit history in June and my AAoA will be 6 months also. I just don't wanna risk getting 3 HPs when I can just wait a little longer and only get 1 HP on EX.

@eviLution Been there, done that! It's probably best to wait. I had no idea they had triple pulled when I got denied last year. Wasn't really paying attention to stuff like that then. I think waiting definitely helped me out.

AFAIK, you'll get 3 HP's for your first Amex card. You'll get approved no matter when you apply though. If you're also shooting for an Amex revolver, now's your best chance.

Before I get scolded by all the angry gardeners, no, I'm not advising eviL to leave the garden. Cat Tongue

over 6 weeks no apps... Brain is going crazy.... Found a old amex express I was AU on it... Keep staring at it and telling myself. Wait till next year to apply and back date it. This will help my AAOA. 

Got a year to plan it..


6 weeks is a great start bravo keep up the good work

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?
