Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

My Discover card has finally reported and I received a new SW alert today. I've been waiting to see how my score was going to be affected by this final new credit ding. Much to my surprise, I actually got a 15 point boost, bringing me up to 710! I doubt that it was because of the new account, though; a couple of other things may very well have factored in. Today is the 1 year anniversary of an inq, so the effect was due to drop off. And, an account that reported a balance last month updated to a zero balance. So, I'm sure that the score change was due to a combination of factors all happening to coincide at once. Whatever the case, I'm thrilled to be back in the 700 club across the board!!! :smileyvery-happy:

 

Now to continue sitting back in the garden and enjoying the view! :smileyhappy:

New to the garden, but I am hoping for no apps until we start looking to buy a home in October of next year. That's a whole year!!! I hope I can do it! I added a few new cards in the last two months so I need to just let these babies grow. Three GE cards to nurture and hope for decent increases. Now it;s time to just sit back and live through everyone else on this forum. I can't lie, I get pretty excited when other people get approvals. Now let me kick back and relax my feet. Here's hoping I don't get any itches!! 



Current: TU (Wal-Mart) 640 EQ (myFICO) 627 EX 628 as of 10/12

NavChek (5000) Cap1 (2500 & 1000) hhGregg (1500) Amazon (900) & WalMart (500) Lowes (300)

Goal: No apps until 07/2013 & 700's across the board

Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

New to the boards here, and looks like I'll be joining the Garden after a fairly large app spree.  All in September in October: Amex BCP - $2000 limit, US Bank Cash Plus - Dropped to Cash Rewards with $2500 limit, will look to upgrade in 6 months, Purdue Federal Credit Union Rewards Visa - $2500 limit, Citi Diamond Preferred (Pre Approval) - $1800, Capital One Cash Rewards (No Annual Fee) - Declined.

 

I currently have a starter card with Cap One and figured during the spree apply for one of the Prime Cards, called to recon, but no such luck.  Not the best smooth talker I guess.

 

Now time to let this stuff grow.  I would like to get the US Bank Cash upgraded to the Cash Plus Signature.  Aside from that just get my limits up.  Right now I use my Chase Freedom and Amex BCP for most everything, More on certain occaisons as well.
