Out of the Garden!

So after over a year in the garden I decided to step out and app for a couple of cards. I app'd and got approved for the Discover It and the Amex BCE. So pumped to have a non Cap1 card. Thank you to everyone on the forum for all of the good info and advice. It was only 18 months ago that all I had was a Cap1 platinum w a cl of $250, these latest 2 were my 4th &5th cards. Still waiting to find out my limits. But thanks to the forums I am guessing my total available credit has went from $250 to in the $5,000 range. Thanks again everyone, excited to be a part of the Discover and Amex families!

Congrats 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Congrats!

What's the rest of your credit profile like? Any baddies, inquiries, etc....

I ask because I read of people with much shorter history getting approved with much bigger limits.
