Mini App Spree!

[ Edited ]

Ran a mini app spree...

 

USAA World Mastercard - app'd online and got a message saying to expect a decision within 2 hours by secure message. never got anything, called the next morning. the rep called underwriting and came back on the line saying it'll be 5-7 days to review. doesn't look good but they pulled my best file and last year I applied and got denied right away via email. will update when decision comes in. UPDATE: Approved for $7k!

 

Citi Simplicity - app'd over the phone. no instant decision. rep gave status # which I called and it stated I was denied due to limited history and delq accts. will try recon. UPDATE: multiple recons unsuccesful. shot down left and right. executive recon in progress.

 

Discover It Student - saw they usually pull EQ which is my best file so I went for it but of course they pull my worst TU. app'd over and instant denial. UPDATE: multiple recons also unsuccesful. executive recon in progress.

 

Local CU CC - app'd over the phone asked for $7500. told to call back in 4 hours. called and got counteroffer for $5000. accepted!

 

Navy Federal - app'd for membership and waiting for approval. will submit nrewards app once approved. UPDATE: membership STILL pending!!!

 

USAA FAKOs: EX 730 EQ 720 TU 602

UPDATE: USAA EX FICO 672 from approval letter. lots of room for improvement!

If you're approved for membership with Navy Federal, consider the cashRewards instead because if you're approved for 5k or more it is a Visa Signature...if that is your goal of course.


Any advice given is always YMMV...

Thanks! I have had USAA's secured MC for a year with a $5k cl and an account at Fingerhut with a $250 cl. My baddie is this traffic ticket that has progressed from misunderstanding to collection account. Still trying to get it resolved. Doubt it'll come off my report (only TU thankfully) before the SOL is up but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm a newbie to the unsecured credit world...I looked up Visa Signature and it looks like it includes some extra benefits? What exactly are the advantages? MC doesn't have anything like this right?

Re: Mini App Spree!

I think the MC version of a Signature Card is the World card.


Yeah, back to a seedling because of Huntington Bank offering me $150 to open a checking account... Well of course I had to app for the Voice card while I was at it....

Re: Mini App Spree!

This is not a mini app spree - this is a full app spree. It would be very rare in the world outside of this forum to see a person applying for 4 credit cards in one day. While it might happen in this forum often, we all must remember that the credit activities of those of us in here tend to differ significantly from "the outside world".

All the same, congrats on your successes - and remember to stay patient. Your profile will continue to improve in time.

In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $32,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $14,600, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Thank You Premier (6/15) $6,800

Oh you're right - this started as a mini and has morphed  into full blown app spree.
