My father applied yesterday and was approved instantly after answering the security questions online for $3000.

KY, don't know what report they pulled. His EQ was a 697 last week before going on app spree. Very high debt load.

Congrats to your father.

 

Was this the amount he hoped or expected?

Bank of America slashed 10k this week, so he was just trying to replace that before it reported a new maxed out card.  If the sportsmans guide visa gets approved for a similar amount he has replaced all that was lost and then some maybe.
