I must say a very heart felt thank you to everyone on here that post and help others. I have been following the boards for a few months now. My credit scores were in the toilet, like low 500's. I could only get a few low limit cards, such as capital one secured and an orchard bank. with some advice from here and some steady work on my part i got my scores up to the low 600's, in fact tu went from like 500 to 644 recently. So i decided to take a plung in and try for a few tu cards, menaing GE. I had have alot of inq over the last year but not many on tu so i thought it might work since my score was now at 644. I have a few old baddied on there too that worried me but i disputed them so not sure if that helped any. So far today i aplied for two GE cards, walmart and amazon store card. Well i am super happy to report i was APPROVED for BOTH with walmart limit at $600 and amazon at $700, wooohoooo...long road getting here and i know there mot visa, mastercard,american express or discover but for me after the long process of rebuilding there like GOLD ot me. Again thank you and i look forward to posting more good news in the future. Anyone that has been down like me, hold your head up because if i could get these and rebuild anyone can..take care and god bless..

I agree, its amazing here. Here is a little update. I figured since i went 2 for 2 i would go for 3 for 3 because i have to go to the dentist tomorrow and not sure how much work i will need done after this visit so i applied for the Carecredit before my other 2 inq post to report and OMG, i got approved for $1200, like amazing and my highest limit ever. Now does this report to all 3 cra? i sure hope so..Ok, i think i am done with GE for today, i don't want to many inq on tu but would be willing to go for a major card they support if anyone knows of one...lol..other then that thank you all once again..

When I started out here I had 2 capital ones with $500 and $750 limits and scores in the upper 500's. Look at my siggy now and it was 2 years ago. I tell everyone that this place is the best. READ AND LEARN, its that easy.
