I'm kinda surprised.
My experian report shows 1 6-year old collection, 1 30-day late payment, and utilization on 2 store cards of about 90%, on my 9 month old discover of 50%.
But I have a bank account, retirement accounts, and income that is over $100K.
Approved for BCP with CL of $10K.

Nice CL, I guess 10+ year of credit history + 100k income makes them over look a few mis-steps over the years.
