How likely am I to get approved for BCE?

My AAoA is 8 months and my oldest TL is 1 year and 4 months

Chase Freedom opened 9/12

Discover More opened 8/12

Wells Fargo Cash Back opened 1/12

 

I have a few student loans as well, I am just waiting until next month in order to drop my utilization to about 3%

 

Do you guys think I have a shot? or should I try for a charge card?

Re: How likely am I to get approved for BCE?

In my personal opinion you're more likely to be approved for a charge than the BCE so far. If you're willing to wait at least 4 months, then you have a good shot at the BCE!

What is your fico score now ? 

 

Based on a lot of other persons posts you should be safe if you are over 720,  however I have seen persons getting approved with score starting from 680

 

The more important question is what is the purpose of getting a new card if its " just because " then don't get one if it because you need it them try. 

 

 

Current Score: 771 - 11/21/2012/ Amex Pull
Late Payment: 0 / Collections: 0
AAOA: 6.3 Years

"My Scores Yesterday or Last week or even Last month has no value when applying for credit today. The value is not in my score but the information in my credit file. Once the information is good the score will follow"

My fico score is 704. I am getting this card mainly because of the consistent reward categories on gas and groceries plus no AF

Ok 704 you have increased your chance to about 70% the risk to Amex is your credit is really young without much history .

My best bet is to wait until April and you guarantee the approval. Right now there is a risk with new trade lines and young history.
