Largest CL for me

While at my CU inquiring about a auto/motorcycle loan my CSR asked me about my credit cards, what I had, what interest rates etc etc. Since they were pulling my credit report for the motorcycle loan I asked to see what kind of CL I could get on their card.. Unfortunately I was 19 points (my 681 vs 700 needed) short of getting their Platnium card with a 6.9% rate but did qualify for their Gold Card with a 9.9% rate with a CL of 7K.. Also got approved for the auto/motorcycle loan @ 5% for 72 months... My score will only sho one ding/inquiry and got approved for both... Thanks to the forums for all your help..


Starting Score: 10/03/2010 EQ:674 TU 676
Current Score:11/15/2010 EQ 681 TU ???
Goal Score: 700 Club

Kinda cool when someone actually acts like they want your business, isn't it? :smileywink:

Your right hauling, kinda makes you feel wanted.. Thats all the apps for me for awhile, now its time to do some gardening...

 

BTW they told me to come back in a few months once my credit score recovers and i hit the 700 mark and we'll do the app on their Platnium Card..
