Re: What a day! What a spree!

Thanks so much guys! I know this was my first post, but I've lurked for ages!

@unlucky:

 

<CARD> - <LIMIT>

Credit Union CC - $3,125

CapOne - $1,800 (Love button just added $500 a week or so ago)

Orchard Bank - $400 (CapOne won't up the limit for a while, as they just acquired them, says a rep)

BarClay - $3,700 (Was $1k, requested a limit increase in May to buy a new retina Macbook for work)

 

Oldest card was CapOne @6 years, average age is 2 years.

 

I had just paid off everything, so utilization has been 0% for the past 30 days or so.

 

Equifax reports 0 inquiries, Experian reports 1, from fall '12, from a new Verizon plan.

 

My scores were 697 (EQ) and 696 (EX), and I did all 3 of the apps from ~12-1pm yesterday.

 

Amex gave instant approval, had to call to get my limit.

 

Chase gave wait and see notice, called back ~10 times over next hour or so using automatic status checker, couldn't find an app for SSN for a while, then approval. Called for CL.

 

Discover approved immediately, had to call for limit as well.

 

 

Edit: So, what can I reasonably expect to happen to my credit score? I know the inquiries will hurt it a bit, but will it be offest perhaps by the more than doubling of limits that occurred?

  • Chase Sapphire - $5,000
  • Discover IT - $8,500
  • Amazon Rewards - $1,500
