I'm so HAPPY :')

I am soo happy!  I have been trying so hard to get some sort of positive tradelines on my credit and seemed hopeless since I couldn't get approved for a secured card.

 

I had applied for Bank of America Platinum Visa card after getting a pre-qual or pre-approval online (can't remember which) I received the letter in the mail yesterday and was denied due to lack of credit history.  I called to recon and talked to a credit analyst, he said pay of your charge off and we'll might approve you in six months.  But I had a feeling I should contact the CEO, which I did for reconsideration.  I received a call from an amazing lady that works on the card servies management team.  She was very personable and nice but tried to convince me to get the secured card and I kept declining (lack of funds lol) but while I was talking to her I think I was impressing her with my knowlege of credit thanks to this forum and we spoke of utilization, paying before due date to avoid interest etc. She asked that I email her a copy of my Aaron's payment history for consideration.  I emailed her and said I couldn't get it until monday and not 30 minutes later she called me personally again and said that I impressed her with my knowledge of credit and I clearly know what my goals as far as my credit is concerned and that someone needed to give me a chance and she wanted to be that person!

 

And she APPROVED ME for a $500 Bankamericard Platinum visa!   I could not stop thanking her for giving me the chance!  I plan on only using this for gas every month which is usually less than $50 (I work from home)

 

With this reporting along with Fingerhut when it does and Aarons I think I have a good chance at my dream, owning a home!

Ah it has huh?! :smileyvery-happy: I am ready for the ride! 

 

She told me they are very generous with the CLI as well and they may automatically do it within 30 days ! Insane! If they don't I probably won't request one until the 6month to a year mark. 

 

Does anyone know how long it normally takes them to report?

Usually 1-2 statement cycles.
