Just an update, I applied today at my local Citibank, approved for a Citi Thank you preferred $7000CL, happy about that

but then later on the day thinking I had good luck, applied for a Discover since they had sent me pre approvals like crazy, did it online, it stated I was approved but had to wait 7-10 days for the card, called and the rep said $2500 with no chance to increase until 6months, I was tempted to withdraw the application and it will not show as an acct closed but just a hard pull/inquire

At the end I will keep it and just wait and see..


question, how much will this lower my scores above? thanks for all the info

What Im thinking in 6 months with the utility under 9% I should be a the same scores right?
