Thank you thank you.
Now time to MAX THIS BABY OUT!
JUST KIDDING! hehehe...
But seriously, i'm still trying to figure out how in the world I got approved? Any insights?
If they pulled an EX, my score is 633.

I've been browsing the forum for some time now and have read about many with not-so-great credit being approved for the Amex Delta Skymiles Card.
For the past year, the only cards I have been able to be approved for were:
Orchard Bank $300
Capital One $300
In an attempt to try to fix the damage I have done to my credit, (Had some financial issues a few years back but now I'm back on my feet) I have been diligently paying my 2 credit cards on time, every time, for the past few months.
Only having a credit limit of $300 just wasn't cutting it for me. So...
Since everyone has had such great luck with the Delta card, I said what the heck, it wouldn't hurt just to try it, (even though my credit is cluttered with CO's and DEROGS and in the low 600's) to my amazement, I was approved for $4500!
Now my question is... HOW IN THE WORLD DID THIS HAPPEN?!?!?!? WOO HOO!!!!
