I don't know how much that would help my application though. I obtained that card only a month ago...

So happy right now. I paid off 2 cards and my util is down to 19% and my score went up 13 points 696. Thisclose to 700. I wonder if I should wait until my discover posts a 0 balance . My util should be below 10 then.
I know they look at the last soft but I wonder if my numbers would be good enough if I ask for a hard pull.

Will find out soon... I really want an Amex in January though. It's my most important credit card plan for the whole year.
