Need a credit card with a nice limit to help decrease consumption.

My util. is very high, around 90%. I need a Credit Card with no Annual Fee and a decent limit just to help bring down my util.

 

Where might I be able to get accepted? I would just use the card once every 6 months or so to keep it active then PIF. My TU FICO is 729, EQ 701, and EX 708. I have no baddies and no collections.

I would apply with BOA and submit with your app your BT maybe they will not count that creditor in your DTI mix, and utilization mix. Citi also has some attractive rates and 0% bt for 12 months on some of their card products.

You have good scores and good TLs, Chase is good to have... See what BOA gives you if you dont like it, talk to recon, you can find the number in the backdoor numbers at the top of the page in the forum, and tell them you want to transfer a balance, I can almost guarantee they will give you a nice limit for some reason they love BTs.

Your score's are great, but you are probably going to have problems getting a high limit card with 90% UTL.
