Mini app spree results

So, I started reading the boards again more recently and decided to "refresh" my credit cards a little after paying off a car loan last month.

 

I currently have 9 cards, with three new:

 

Chase Freedom 6k CL

Citi Diamond Preferred 6k CL

Discover More 1.5 CL (approved today)

 

The remaining cards are:

 

BOA World Points MC 6k CL

BOA BankAmericard Power Rewards Signature Visa 10k CL (CL not reported to any of the CBs any more :smileysad:

Sears store card 3.3k CL (Citi is upgrading it to MC)

Shell gas card 2.4k CL

Pottery Barn card3k CL

Home Depot store card 2k CL

 

I am slightly disappointed with the Discover More CL, but I will take it :smileyhappy: Now, it is time to garden....

Congrats on your approval. I am a bit confused about BOA signature visa. I have their cash rewards signature visa and it reports its CL (10k). Do they treat their different visa signature cards differently?

I am not sure what is going on but my posts are not appearing. Is Internet Explorer 9 playing tricks on me again? This is a third edit... Hopefully, it will work this time (if so, Mozilla Firefox Rules!):

 

@Mustang - Pottery Barn is a good card to have if you shop there a lot. It is backed by WFNNB, but you get "10% in rewards points back on all purchases." I also got a couple of $25 certificates in the mail since I opened the card at the end of last year. The APR is only 16%, which is not bad for a store card, I think.

 

@vish1 - My BOA signature visa is a result of an involuntary conversion from an old Miles Edge card that they no longer offer. After the conversion, it initially reported CL for quite a while and when I checked my reports recently I noticed it does not anymore. I read on the forums that for some converted cards, the CL is still reported. I would imagine it is sheer luck :smileyhappy:  I will probably try to convert this card to something else in a few months once I graduate (in a few weeks!!!), get a decent job and my new cards get a little older.

I have a BOA Power Rewards signature card that does not report a limit and never has.  It is listed as a "flexible spending credit card" on my reports.  I like it that way because it doesn't seem to be figured into utilization.  As far as I can tell, FICO ignores it (except for TU98).

My card also shows up as "flexible spending ..." but reports a limit also. I had pc from secured to cash rewards visa signature about 2 months back.
