I could not resist..

Well let me start off by saying i only have a credit history of about 6 months. I started off with a secured loan 6 months ago. I applied for a secured cc at about 3 months in. On August 2nd i decided to test my luck, so I applied for the BOA platinum visa, and i got approved for $900. The very next day i applied (and was approved) for the Chase Freedom ($700), Chase Sapphire(5k), and Chase Marriott(5k). I was forced to garden because of the bonus offers. I was trying so hard to not apply for more cards during the past couple weeks (about 4),and Today i could no longer resist Smiley Sad. I applied for the AMEX SPG rewards card and was instantly approved Smiley Very Happy. I am so extremely stoked at the moment Smiley Very Happy Just thought I would share my recent sucess in the past month Smiley Happy

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: I could not resist..

I would think on one of these acceptance letters you would have gotten the price you pay for credit type thing and it usually tells you who they pulled and what score.
