Re: I just got approved for Hooters MC!

Concerning the Hooters MC instead of waiting for the letter I called and was told I was APPROVED for a $1000 cl!!!!  Yepee!!!  Glad I called and I'm very glad I read this thread.  Time and paitence, I agree must be my friend, but it sure is nice not to have to wait too long.  Cap 1 is ok but to tell you the truth I'd like to get a cl with my credit union instead but I have to get my score higher.  Anyway, thanks everyone, guess I might look funny with a Hooter's card too but hooCares!!!

Re: I just got approved for Hooters MC!

If in fact you are trying to raise FICO by improving your % of utilization, WHY would you use this card, at al, regardless of male/female? Using it will only return you to where you were prior to getting it.

Re: I just got approved for Hooters MC!

Can you all tell me what your UTI was on your other cards at the time of application, whether it may affect approval or not, and/or if you think Hooters decisions are based soley on scores. I am in Michigan and am also wondering if anyone knows who they pull from.  I have been working so hard on my scores since a terrble (abusive) marriage, and have gone from the LOW 400's to FICO median today of 583.  The reason I ask is I just paid down UTI to about 50%, and intend to have it down to 10% or less by the new year, but, a larger limit card would certainly help.  Any thoughts ?
Thanks!

583 is NOTHING to sneeze at from where you started. You can do it. I was at 525 about a year and a half ago- and now I am trying to break 700- I may have done it, I am just not going to check my scores until right before Christmas.

I too live in Michigan and when I applied in June 2007 they pulled Equifax and gave me an instant approval for $5,000.
 
Good Luck

Re: I just got approved for Hooters MC!

Thanks all,
I applied over the phone today, and the rep stated that I would hear with in "30 days".  How long after I have paid down my current balances does it take to show up?  I just paid all my cards down to 40-50% utilization and am hoping that I will get approved,but am concerned that the balances wont show up in time.  Any advice?
