Even 5% CB on everything for 6 months isn't enough to tempt me to get into bed with Chase.

V. good point.

 

Not typically a rewards chaser here, so this is a test run to see how I like it, lol

 

+1000 on not trusting Chase as far as one can throw them.  They are about as shady as it gets of the majors IMO but figure if I keep them on a short leash- of course PIF and try to rack up some rewards the 1st 6 mos we *MAY* just get along, at least short-term... and wooing me with a generous starting CL is the language of luv Smiley Very Happy

Approved for Amex PR Gold in October.  At time of app, EQ FICO was around 650 (may have been 648 but I can't remember exactly now).  I had late payments that were almost, but not quite, two years old.  Don't know if that qualifies, but I was pleasantly surprised.  I wouldn't have even applied except that I needed a card with a higher limit for business travel and Cap1 denied my CLI request. 


Starting Score: ~500 (12/01/2008)
Current Score: EQ 681 (04/05/13); TU 98 728 (01/06/12), TU 08? 760 (provided by Barclay 1/2/14), TU 04 728 (lender pull 01/12/12); EX 742 (lender pull 01/12/12)
Goal Score: 720

Nice one!  Sometimes it pays to submit a "reach" app. Smiley Tongue

If anyone else is willing to share any surprising app results or f/b about the actual OP product, thanks! Smiley Happy

Here's my most recent/ long shot app result.

 

Approved for Pen Fed Visa with 8 new accts in the past year Smiley Surprised  Wouldn't thought it possible (and don't advocate willy nilly app., they all serve a good purpose and were planned out well in advance as part of a building effort) but am of course over the moon with the result! (4 previous denials over 2+ yrs as a member)

 

Had thought build plan effectively excluded Pen Fed for a minimum of 12-24 months and possibly permanently due to number of TLs, am absolutely amazed and delighted having taken such a gamble.

 

Besides the new accts issue- clean report and reasonably strong stats overall (reported in Pen Fed survey thread)
