FiCO's.  

 

What is AAAoA?

Called CapOne to see if they could upgrade my current card to a Cash Rewards card.  They said there aren't any options for me and I would need to app for another card.  Being that I got the 4 dream cards already in just 1 day, I didn't want to risk being denied.  I'll hold on to the card for another year to let me 4 new cards age and cancel the Capital One card so I don't get hit with an annual fee.

Close to 6 years.

 

The Cap one will be closed since I know it doesn't affect my AAoA, just my utilization.  But since my 4 new cards combined have more CL than CapOne, I don' t think my utilization will be problem.

Thanks guys.   Yes, I'm still in shock I was 4 for 4 on my app spree and got great limits.  That's NEVER happened.  And yes, Discover must have some wicked voodoo formula that worked in my favor.  I think it has to do with the mortgage I closed a couple of weeks ago, but I doubt that would show up yet, but it's nice to check the box that says "own" rather than rent. It should arrive Wednesday (they send in 2 days, as oppose to 7-10 days that everyone else does).

Well I pushed my luck.

 

Called up Barclays to increase my current CL of $500 (3 years old) to something respectable.  They only bumped it up $350.  

 

Apped for Chase Sapphire (non-Preferred) and got the "we need to evaluate".  Called the back door number and explained, that yes I've opened a few cards yesterday, but I bank with Chase and have savings there.  They brought up my student loan lates, but I told them that was last year and should become a year old in October, but I've never been late on a card payment.  She replied they gave me the Freedom card and will see how I do with that.  

 

Oh well.  At least I'll get the denial letter to get my free credit reports to have (I usually pull 2x a year).  September 2013 is marked on my calendar to re-app.  My mortgage HP's in January 2012 (all denied), and May 2012 (approved)  and these recent 5 HP's for credit cards will be all over a year old by then and shouldn't count against me.  Chase Sapphire and AMEX Blue Preferred versions are my targets.

 

At least I can say I was 4 for 4 on my apps.  Thank you guys for all your help and insight.  Time to hit the garden until fall 2013.
