Just want to say thanks!

[ Edited ]

Because of this forum, I was able to accomplished things toward rebuilding my credit.  First, I applied for my first Discover card and was instantly approved with 7.5k cl.  Then I was able to get Amex to backdate my membership to 2001 (that was when I first applied and got a green card from them).  I was on the Oasis program with them and still have my Optima card when I applied for a new Amex green.

 

So yeah, this forum rocks! :smileyvery-happy:

 

My FICO scores just for reference:

EX 732

EQ 777

TU 789


Now I think I'm just gonna head over to that garden everyone's been talking about since I want to up my score to 800+ across the board. :smileytongue:

 

Mod, please feel free to move this if it's in the wrong section and my apologies in advance.
