Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier APPROVAL!!!

I have been rebuilding my credit since 11/2012.  I am proud to report that I was approved for a Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier credit card with a $5000 credit limit.  This is by far my highest credit limit and I was truly surprised that I would even gain approval for this card given my current credit score but I have been getting mulitple offers to apply for this card for the last 2 months so I decided to give it a shot.  Now that I have this card and am part of the Chase family I plan to garden for the next year and let my Credit Score improve!


Starting Score: 528
Current Score: 620
Goal Score: 680

Congrats!!! Can you share if you had any baddies on your report when you applied? Also do you know who they pulled and what your score was?

Re: Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards Premier APPROVAL!!!

I was just now approved for the Airtran Visa which I believe is basically the same as the Southwest card.  I don't know what they pulled, but my EX is 673 (TU fako 679, EQ fako 661).  My last baddie was in Jan. 2011 and was a 30 day late.  I have quite a few inquiries too which is a big no-no, but for some reason they still approved me for a $7500 limit. 

If you have any other questions feel free to ask!  I poured over website forums like this for weeks trying to find out what kind of score was needed and I didn't find much info.  So I'd love to help someone else.
