Re: Wells Fargo said yes!!!

Do you happen to know your credit score and which CRA they used? Oh and which state you live in. I've also been rebuilding my credit for a couple years now and am at TU 644 / EXP 674 / EQ 702 and would like to apply for the card since they are always inviting me to apply....but I really don't want an inquiry if I don't need to. I only have 1 right now so I'm not too worried about it but I'm so ecstatic I'm finally 700+ on at least one CRA that I really don't want to lower that score! I also couldn't find much info on which CRA they pull from and I'd be bummed if I got denied because they pulled TU....

 

In re: to your question, I would keep them open until you establish your card a little while longer. Like you, I also have Cap One cards that help contribute to the average age of my accounts. I keep them open despite their horrible CL ($500 each x 2). Average age of accounts can help lower/raise your score.

 

P.S. Congrats on rebuilding your credit!!!!

WF is good about giving cards to their customers. The banker who did my app at the branch said they actually take your bank accounts into consideration during the process.

Re: Wells Fargo said yes!!!

They pulled EXP which at that time wasmy highest score at 725 I believe (TU & EQ were in the high 600's). I had two inquiries on that report and I'm in CT. I hope this info helps!
