After two years of credit rebuilding, and 10 continuous months of gardening, my credit reports and scores were  finally where I wanted them to be. So, I bade farewell to the garden and went forth to app. And, I went three for three, with the following results:

 

Discover - $2000

BoA Cash Rewards for UCF Alumni Association - $5000

Citi Diamond Preferred - $6800

 

 

I'm floored! I was hoping to get in with the above, but I'm thrilled at the starting CLs of the last two. I've gone from having subprime crud two years ago, to this!!!

 

Thanks to everyone on these forums for all of the advice, knowledge and emotional support. It's been tough rebuilding, but I've finally made it. My scores are respectable and I'm creditworthy once again. In all honesty, this forum has been a life changer. Thank you so much for helping me to get my credit on track!!! I'm a myFICO success story!!!!! :smileyvery-happy:

 

And one other note to folks who are rebuilding their credit -- gardening works! I was flat out denied for the last two cards 10 months ago. Patience pays!

 


Congrats...although...
