Just approved for Discover MORE!!!!! (with a new high for CL)

Hey everyone!  Just wanted to post that I was just approved for a Discover More with a CL of $8000!!!!  This is my highest CL by a long shot.  My highest CL until now was a jewelry store card with a 4K CL and my highest limit on my majors was a Cap1 with $2500 CL.  I'm soooo excited.  Thanks to all of you guys for all the great info - especially since I got the 30 day message and knew to give them a call because of you all!!! Woot!
 
Here's some background info on my profile for anyone who wants to know:
I have 6 years of history (Cap1 was first and oldest card).  1% Util. No baddies on EQ, 1- 30 day late on TU and EX from 4 years ago.  FICOs EQ 759, EX 754, TU 743

You should add AMEX or BofA to the mix with those scores!

My plans were to apply for Discover, BofA, and Home Depot (just closed on my first house last Friday, and I want to do some renovating although I don't know if it's better to apply online or in person????)  AMEX really spooks me Creditaddict.  I already watch my credit like a hawk on my own, and I definitely don't need anyone else to do it.  Besides, I don't like living on pins and needles when I use my cards.  I was thinking of going for the BofA Amex though, to have a nice spread of prime cards and officially enter into grown-up-hood.Smiley Wink

From the sounds of your first post, you manage your credit very well and I would not let AMEX spook you.  Their cards are so shiiiiiiiney
