Post closing app spree

[ Edited ]

Taking the advice of Lexie and Journey I set out to apply for 

 

Lowes

NFCU membership + nRewards + NavChek (if approved for nRewards)

Discover IT

 

and here are the results drum roll.....

 

Lowes - denied. Called recon said it was a flat deny from the automated system and they can't override. No details on why other than credit report related

NFCU account opened, nRewards: Approved $500. Waiting on results of nRewards before trying for NavChek

Discover IT - Approved $800, tried recon, said $800 was max they can approve, but call back in 3 months and ask again.

 

Since Lowes didn't work out I decided to give Wal-Mart a try

 

Wal-Mart - Approved $400, recon unsuccessful here also.

 

So over all I'm a bit disappointed the Lowes didn't work out but I went from a $400 sec CapOne to adding a $800 Disc IT and $400 Wal-mart. 

 

Now I'm in the garden til Apr when my BK falls off and hopefully be able to get an Amex (for backdating to early 90s) and/or Chase 

 

Thanks for all the advice and tips I've read on here!!! 

 

 

NFCU NavCheck $15k | NFCU cashRewards $12.5k | NFCU goRewards $12.5k |AMEX SPG $10k | Citi AA WEMC $6.5k | CSP $5k | Wal-Mart MC $4.5k | US Air WMC $3.9k | Amex Everyday $2k | Amex BCE $2k | Chase Freedom $1k | Discover IT $800

Congrats on your closing and approvals!  Not sure what happened with Lowes but at least Walmart will grow with you.  I'm pretty confident about NFCU, they tend to be forgiving for past derogs.  

 

By the way, my DH's Walmart started at $400 in March, using it 1x and not requesting a cli- it's not $850.  He refuses to call and ask for more Smiley Frustrated

I see a lot of people with NFCU on here.  Are you all, or know someone in the Navy?  Or is there a way around that?

@supervelous

Besides a direct military affiliation, employees of DOD are eligible. There is no backdoor for Navy.
