What card do I have a shot at?

[ Edited ]

I'm thinking about apping for a new cc after my BoA card goes unsecured.My TU Fico is 667 and EQ Fico is 618. Here is what my reports looks like:

 

Bank of America Secured- 9 months old - $300 limit - paid as agreed

 

Capital One - 12 months old - $750 limit - paid as agreed

 

Orchard Bank - 12 months old - $300 limit - paid as agreed

 

Crown Jeweler's - 12 months old - $2,500 limit - paid as agreed

 

Each report has an average of about 8 inquiries all over a year old. (No inquiries in the last 12 months.) No baddies exept the short credit history and inqueries. 

 

Utill is about %90:smileysurprised: (not counting the Crown jeweler's TL). I plan on paying that down below %5.

I will report back when I am able to check my scores. Any advice is greatly appreciated!:smileyhappy:

Utilization 90%? Get it under 9.

Check out www.whogavemecredit.com.  Also which ever is your best score, check to see which CCCs pull; from them.

 

I would look at a GEMB product.  Sams is very usefull to me and peharps a gas card.

OK. Here is what I came up with.

 

Walmart / GEMB

Kohls / Chase

Chevron

 

I'm mostly worried about the short credit history. Will that be a problem for these cards.
