Re: Helping GF Build Credit!

If she is rejected for regular forward, don't app again for student. I would call for recon. Or have to wait on forward.

Re: Helping GF Build Credit!

So she was approved for the Amex Zync NPSL!!!! She also applied for the regular Citi Forward and received the "We will contact you within a week via email regarding our decision" notification. Is that usually a good sign since it wasn't an instant rejection? Should she call and see what's up or just wait this one out and see what they say?

 

Either way we both got Amex Zyncs this week which is awesome!!!! :smileyvery-happy:

Not sure. Call one. Maybe Regular forward was too aggressive but hopefully not.

Re: Helping GF Build Credit!

I thought i was the only one that gets really hype when the women in my life get approved for good prime cards.

My girlfriend sister is 26 had nothing on her credit report except for a capital one platinum 500CL(sucks I know tell me about it) by the way im 20.

I asked her when was the last time you check your credit she tells me I never did so I helped out just like you drew. 

She didn't want to pay for her fico scores so told the hell with it you bank with chase so apply for a slate card they denied her but was approve for freedom

with 3500CL my mouth dropped. So lets go with the discover more approved 1800CL im beging her to go for amex but IM going to let her garden for 6 months.

When people get approved for prime cards (excuse my language) but I get a hard on when that happens LOL.
