I went on a miniature app spree and for once, it was actually fruitful.

 

I app'ed for the Amazon.com store card and instantly approved for $900, I called GE directly and asked them to increase it! Suprisingly, they did, $1,500.

I called up Chase and requsted a CL on my Freedom. Asked them for an additional 2K, denied. Spoke with an analyst and BAM! Approved, now standing at $6.5K (Third increase in under a year; 2K initial limit, 500 auto, 2K newest request)

 

Finally, I app'ed for the Discover IT. I have been wanting to get in with Discover for ages and I didn't hold my breath on an approval. Suprisingly, they offered me a counter offer. 3.99% for 6 months than 22.99. Did anyone get a counter offer from Discover? What was the limit? I still don't know mine.

 

Here is a little background on my profile:

 

Closed Cap1 Secured 1/2013 (Opened 1/2011)

Cap1 MTV $2K (Opened 6/2011)

BBY Store Card $3.1K (Joint, I'm Primary) (Opened 7/2011)

Chase Freedom $6.5K (Opened 3/2012)

Closed AMEX Zync PSL 1/2012 (Opened 08/2012)

Amazon.com Chase Visa $1.5K (Opened 1/2013)

 

No baddies, 3 year credit profile. Util always hovering around 30%

Inquires - Don't ask....tooo many

 

Future - I really really want the AMEX BCP and CSP but right now, LOL!!!


Congrats on the increases! And congrats on Discover!

This is true, they denied me on my 1st try with them on the freedom because of INQ's.

Re: Miniature App Spree - How did I do?

Haha, thanks everyone. The advice on this forum is amazing.

 

Also, no notification from MyFICO and Citi Credit Monitoring yet from a Chase HP. I did get a notification for the Discover and Amazon/GE HPs. I am guessing that is a no HP from Chase. Is that unusual?
