I'm done for a while.  Today was a success with 2 out of 3 cards approved!  Amazon gave me this message after applying:

Thank you for applying for the Rewards Visa Card.

I looked up the back door number for Chase and spoke to a very nice guy who asked me lots of questions about collections and inquiries and after being placed on hold for 4 more times, he came back and told me he was able to approve me for a small credit limit of $500.  That's ok, have to start somewhere.  The results of today are:


WalMart = NO      Discover IT = $2200 CL     Amazon Chase = $500 CL

Do you know if they pulled EQ on your Amazon card?
