Re: Next credit card to rebuild my score?

Woolfman, that's so inspiring!  Thanks for sharing.  Was your BoA card originally secured or not?

It was not secured.

Great news -- my EQ FICO just jumped to 694!  And so I applied to Alliant CU today.  Thanks everyone for the great advice!

Exciting.  Hopefully your score won't take a hit for the inquiry and a possible new tradeline if you apply for a CC.

Welcome to the forums.

 

Lots of people here recommend joining a local credit union. In many cases they seem to be more understanding.

 

Good luck to you.
