I get no love but by GEMB...

Hi all im working on my credit ive got to tell you ive been farming!! started with bad credit in 2010 had a repo.. and 3 lates.. thought they were on autopay during a divorce yada yada.. get my point haha.. have 2 CO paid. No collections. so my scores started at around 500 back then. Well i lucked out and had gotten a Orchard bank secured and had it for the past 6 yrs.. never late always pif, low limit 500. Thats probably why my score didnt go any further in the mud. Ive had a student loan for 10 yrs that i send just a measely amount every month for the time haha.. never late. Ok then i went on a credit spree in about 2010 before my repo..got a walmart, sams club, kay jewelers card low limikts like 500 each. let them hang out for the past couple yrs.. gardened then 2012 i got real bad.. started appin everyone i mean everything.. horrible i know.. but if it was square and plastic i had to have it. Only ended up with 3 cap one cards a nfl xtra points card, paypal smart connect, all around june of last year. Of course i didnt get anything great but hey im thinking im building so why not atleast try.. SO then around december i called all these cards and i was surprised walmart 400-800 sams club 700-2100 nfl 500-800 scores are getting better 624-654 thats december of 2012. Fast forward to march of 2013.. so ive layed low no balances i use just for gas etc.. small stuf.. so Kay jewelers sends me a ty for being a loyal customer heres a cli to 3500.. im like **bleep**.. ok cool. So i call sams club i got crazy ask for 4000.. approved. I call walmart 4000 denied countered to 1200.called paypal 700 approved for 2200.. so those are huge jumps in a short amount of time. But as i stated its all gemb..I apped today for a citi card need further review.. I apped for texaco/chevron instant 700 approval but once again gemb.. lol. So my question is am i blessed or cursed. Am i crazy for wanting all the credit available to me?? I figure hey ive got so many INQ might as well try for everything get where i want to be then stop all for 2 yrs and garden. Is that a good idea? Its funny because i never use credit but for minimal purchases to pif..lunch etc.. What next? as i do have many many i mean many inquires. I WANT THE 700-800 CLUB PLS!! LOL

p.s how do i list all my cards in my wallet lol as i have a ton my wallets 3 inches thick.. but with such low limits i have quantity over quality haha.. one day i want that reversed.. i think im over about 13000 in credit. most store cards though. Is this good for rebuilding my credit?

GE gives luv to everyone if your files are looking goo and you show them luv!!

 

IMO you want a better score, join the Garden and relax for a year. Let the INQ's/new accounts age!

Re: I get no love but by GEMB...

I would rotate and PIF. Keep a 1-9% balance on 1 card and make sure all others are PIF. I think over the course of a year when the INQ's do not affect your FICO scores you should see a very nice bump!! 50 points is possible but definitely YMMV.

 Yup, this is golden info!  Time and patience will boost your score. Pay on time, keep utilization low, let the inquiries fall off and good things will happen. 

 

Someone can correct this if I am wrong but if it was me, I'd do the above then app for some prime cards. After I did that, I'd try for CLIs on the cards that I've had for awhile if I didn't get them automatically.

Re: I get no love but by GEMB...

How many INQ do you have on TU... Time to get a Barclay Card!

Well just keep using and asking for increases on your GE cards... they will hopefully all start getting upgrade offers for the Sams Discover, PayPal MC etc.

You get EQ and EX to the 680-690 range that you show on TU and you will see approvals with others... Amex Gold Charge, Discover it, etc.
