Well my credit has been in standby mode for a few months with this mortgage stuff. We closed on our house this morning and funded, so I decided to come home and app for a few cards and had some success
Chase Freedom Sig - 6k
Bank of America 123 Sig - 5k
Us Bank Cash Plus - In review
Amex BCE- In review
Pretty hapy with the 2 CL's since my highest was 2240 and I've had horrible credit up until I cleaned it up. Nice to have a couple signature cards. Going into the garden for a long time now!

Dude, sweet approvals .
I do find it interesting that both Chase and BOFA more than doubled your prior limits, I'd be darned happy with that too, mucho congratulations!

Wow very nice!

i would use that link to check the status i bet they have decided already. It took about 5 minutes for mine to come up as approved.

Thanks guys, I'm definitely stoked that they doubled the limit on my highest card. My scores at the time of app was 740 EQ and 729 TU(none pulled TU), and EX I have no idea what it is right now. BOFA pulled EX though.
I called the backdoor number on both usb and AMEX. Amex declined me and I didn't ask why, don't really care after getting those 2 credit lines and since I have a Zync it was only a SP for the denial.
The Cash Plus I found out was declined due to being notified of so many applications today. Not sure what the service is but it raised a possible fraud/taking on too much credit flag and they looked at my credit and said it was great and my relationship with the bank was good so they are sending it to the VP for review and I would hear within 4 business days.
All in all, whether cash plus goes thru or not I got 2 great Sig cards and I'm gardening hardcore!
