Re: Get Out Your Crystal Balls

Inquiries - 2 on each report

 

Cap 1 Quicksilver $1,200 - 6.5 years 

Cap 1 Quicksilver $2,000 - 2 years (yes I have 2)

AMEX Optima $5,000 - 7 years

Barclays Rewards CC $500 - 6.5 years (never a CLI)

WF Rewards $1,500 - 6.5 years

Home Depot $3,000 - brand new, not reporting yet

 

Utilization is the tricky part. All are $0 balance except AMEX which will report $14, so 1% utilization on open accounts.  Having said this, I have a PenFed CO from 2008 for $15,000 that is still showing a balance. This makes my total utilization at 156%.  

 

I have been perfect on payments for the last 5 years.

 


Starting Score: 583 EQ, 612 EX, 569 TU
Current Score: 658 EQ, 648 EX, 618 TU
Goal Score: 720 EQ, 720 EX, 720 TU

@ gdale6

Same here in southern tip Indiana. Lenders of every sort (from bank auto/personal loans) to now credit card lenders assaults TU with a vengeance. If a CC pulls EQ or EX, it's always a green light. But TU is a Red Light.

Was approved in August with a 645 score.

Forgot to mention.

US Bank (80% util)
Fingerhut (0%)
Target (0%)

That was it!

Discover approval launched a Prime wide spree all via mailings. Go figure.

Ok, no one knows for sure, this I know. However, do you think it is worth applying for a Discover It CC with a score around 665 (should be when lower utilization reports).

I have 1 unpaid CO from 5 years ago and 1 collection from the same time ago. From my research it seems to be a 50 / 50 proposition but those posts were from a while ago.

I am just on the fence of what to do.


FWIW, Discover pulled TU for me when I first applied and when I asked for CLI. I'm in VA.
