Ok so I was in Kohls and I wanted to get a CC as they have a few nice things, including some sparkly stuff for the DW. Well I got the denied letter and was like OH well...Well i was having some time to kill and I saw that Kay jewers was having a sale so i went in looking around and saw some nice diamond solitaire earrings. guy comes over and is like santa cash this, no fianacing for 12 months that....I was like there is no way they will approve me after getting turned down from kohls and having walmart do a CLD. But I was like these are nice earrings and what the heck. So I went ahead and applied. The guy looks at the screen and smurks at it as someone would do if it came back not approved. Then something printed out and I WAS APPROVED FOR $6500.00!!! WOW is all I could say as that is the higest CL I have gotten since our BK in 2002. SO cool...I wish they carried Breitling watches as I want one!!! So I not only did I get a great CL and a nice gift for my DW, But her B-day is in the end of Januaryand I now have $600 in santa dollars for that as well!!!
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!!!

They have agressive Black Friday adds. Perhaps the week of Black Friday is a good time to app. Enjoy the card.

I have a BK from 2002 and a couple collections from 05. Do you think I would be ok for a high limit CL Visa/MC??? Say at least 3k??? And would I be able to get it before Christmas?? Have a few things I am looking to do and then pay them off in mid april after that nice Tax crediut comes in.

Congratulations! Please remember that charging, charging, charging is what got us into trouble in the first place. Just think twice about those purchases!
I'm being VERY remindful of that as well. I'm actually recycling a gift. DH won a Bose Acoustamass Home Theater System.....Merry Christmas to our son!
