James:

 

I think you may be right.  I also would assume that the high utiliziation on a dept store card isnt really viewed as weighty as high utilization on a generic credit card.  Plus a lot of spend at a place like sears 6 months after buying a house is pretty easy to figure out that its stuff for the house.

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.


Congrats!  Welcome to the Amex family!
