Re: Gunning for Amex today

3 hard pulls for 1k limit is a tough pill to swallow but in the big picture, its no big deal.  The real bruiser is they pulled my EQ which was going to be just about perfect in a couple days(5 INQ's falling off, leaving 4) so I could app for my final card, USAA World MC. Really need to break into 5k+ limit territory.

My wallet:
***Amex BCE 3k***USAA Platinum Visa 12k***Barclays Apple 7500k***Veridian CU 10k***Discover It 10k***Bank of America 8k***Amex Zync***USAA Patinum MC 12k***Navy Federal 20k

Yep, on the phone as I type this. The rep is much more helpful and is attempting to verify my address by contacting my bank so hopefully I can avoid having to mail anything and get answer immediately......stay tuned

I had to go through this with my Zync card when I app'd for it. Congrats on the approval though!
