Re: Goal cards for 2013??

I'm happy with my current status and gardening.

 

After a year without apps I might add store or cas cards strategically but otherwise have no need...

Re: Goal cards for 2013??

I'm going to ask for the 61 day 3x CLI on my BCE in early Feb.  If approved, I'm going to cancel my secured CC.  Then garden for another 6 months and request another 3x CLI on the BCE.  That should put me into a late summer 2013 app spree that will consist of:

 

Citi Forward

BofA Travel Rewards

...and possibly Chase Freedom depending on the research I find on the Travel Rewards card

Sorry, new to this forum, but I'm curious about the AMEX backdating you're talking about? I think I know what backdating is (you have an AMEX account, you close it later on, then years down the road you open it again and AMEX backdates your account to show on your credit reports that you were a member the whole time, right?). How does getting it in January provide the most benefit though?

Re: Goal cards for 2013??

Goal cards:

Chase Hyatt

Chase Priority Club (for the soon-to-be-wife)

PC US Bank Cash Rewards to US Bank Cash+

 

I'd also love PenFed Platinum Rewards, but the two pulls for membership and for the card make me want to hold back on this. Winding apps down in anticipation of applying for a mortgage late 2013 or early-mid 2014.

Recent FICO scores: TU - 755 (mortgage lender pull)

Welcome to the forum, slippy 84 ...

 Say you got an AmEx card 4/2011 and you want another AmEx card but now it's 12/2012 ( really close). I believe waiting for the next year to roll around (January 2013), it will backdate the 2nd card to your original memership date (4/2011). So now you have 2 AmEx card that are over 1yr old. You know with AmEx they don't have customers, they have members.

 

(I'm sure another member can explain it better):smileyhappy:
