Approved 7k cl. 22.9%
EX was pulled and showed 712, which is quite a bit lower than my EQ from here.
2 accounts with serious derogs from 5 years ago, nothing recent. This was the second mention of my student loan balance being too high, so I will pif.
Oh, highest CL was $700 Walmart and an AU on a $3600 cap1
But, I got an error when clicking continue and couldnt get into the account
Awesome starting CL!!!

I was going to app for this card either way because I dine out a fairly often. Anywhere from 500-1500 per month on dining will make this card well worth having for my situation.
I was planning on waiting to app, but I was bored so I went for it a little early.
LOL...I've done the same, many times.
In my view, there are far worse things in life than opening up a new tradline. I'm from the school of thought where you get your credit before you need it, since by the time when you really need it, no one will give it to you.

Thanks, thats really the same approach I am taking. I dont plan on taking on a mortgage for another 3-4 years, but I want to make sure I have all inq off by that time for the best rates. I do not forsee any real need for credit at all. Ive been paying cash and am self-emplyed, so I am trying to go the safe route and earn rewards in the process.
This has become my new hobby and Im trying to have some fun with it!
