I applied for both the Orbitz Mastercard and the Travelocity Mastercard and was denied for both. One of the reasons was due to too many recent inquiries and the fact that I have new accounts. I have acquired 6 credit cards since June of this year with the following credit limits: HSBC CASH OR FLY PLATINUM MASTERCARD--750 DOLLARS HSBC PLATINUM DIRECT REWARDS (DISCOVER NETWORK)--1400 DOLLARS PREMIER BANK PLATINUM MASTERCARD--250 DOLLARS CAPITAL ONE PLATINUM VISA--300 DOLLARS CREDIT ONE PLATINUM VISA--200 DOLLARS WAMU PLATINUM VISA--1000 DOLLARS I AM IN THE PROCESS OF REBUILDING MY CREDIT AND I AM TRYING TO GET MY FICO SCORES UP. THE LATEST FICO SCORE (FROM THE WAMU WEBSITE)BASED ON THE TU CREDIT REPORT IS 621. I MIGHT NEED TO LET THESE NEW CARDS MARINATE FOR A WHILE BEFORE I APPLY FOR NEW CARDS. I REALLY LIKE THE IDEA OF HAVING TRAVEL REWARDS CARDS SINCE I LIKE TO TRAVEL AND I KNOW THAT I WONT BE APPROVED FOR ANY CITI OR CHASE CARDS ANYTIME SOON (OR AMEX FOR THAT MATTER). ANY THOUGHTS OR FEELINGS FROM YOU GUYS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS, I AM NOT SHOUTING. THANK YOU.

I would really like to purchase a new Millineum Falcon with my WAMU (oops Chase card)!!!! But first I need a decent credit limit.
Not to be piling on--I'll bet you're on Firefox, right? Look down at the bottom left below the text box. There's a check box with a line that says, "Automatically convert carriage returns to HTML line breaks." That's your paragraph-maker.
And if you ever edit a post, you'll have to reclick the box, or your will have a blob again.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
