What a day! What a spree!

So, I have been working on my credit for something like 5 years now. Started in the mid 500s, had messed up 2 loans and a CC during college. Just graduated, got everything back together. Joined MyFico in June, and saw a score of 645. Through paying off my student loan and other credit cards, I just got it up to a 697 today! I paid for the Experian, and it is 696!

 

So, I figured I'd try out this spree I've read so much about.

 

  • Amex Blue Cash Preferred - Approved, $2k
  • Chase Sapphire - Approved, $5k
  • Discover IT - Approved, $8.5k (!)

What a day! It feels so good to see all of the hard work of getting my finances in order finally paying off!

 

You guys have been invaluable, thanks to you all!
