My current profile:

 

EQ 746 TU 764 EX unknown HHI undisclosed

13 cards highest limit 13K

14 years for oldest account AAoA 4 years

Util about 19 or 20 %

 

Does that cover it?


I'm guessing no baddies?  Did they hit all 3?  They did for me & initially declined me totally based on my EX report.  I'm currently awaiting a manual review of my app.

 

I'm around the 730 ish mark on TU & EQ.  about 30%  util. & AAoA 4 yrs.  Apped for the blue cash.



Starting Score: 07/2011 TU 732 - EQ 717 - EX 702
Current Score: 06/2014 TU 739 - EQ '08 709 - EX 721

I honestly don't know if they did hit all 3. I do have one collection on EX that I WILL NOT pay due to the fraudulent placement and reporting of it by some zombie CA for BMG.

 

Since I was approved in only a few seconds, I'm hoping they don't hit all my reports.

Re: LIMIT UPDATE

I had the EX baddie too.  How old was yours?

 

Mine was my fed student loan.  For years all was OK!  Then as soon as I paid it off, they reported as a collection.  I sent AMEX all my proof.  Uncle Sam is a LIAR!

Re: LIMIT UPDATE

It's pretty old but won't fall off until next year. BMG is a fraud and so is the collection.

Re: WOW! AMEX BLUE INSTANT APPROVAL!

Mr.Shush - How far apart were your AMEX apps when you got approved for the Blue?

Re: WOW! AMEX BLUE INSTANT APPROVAL!

Thanks for the response Mr. Shush.  I was just approved 2 weeks ago for an AMEX CC that was backdated to 95 (huge bump in AAoA), so I'm really interested in adding another but don't want to rock the boat with another app so soon.  I'll try your approach and wait 6 months to apply.
