After 3 weeks of lurking I finally became a board member. My vantagescores have finally moved into the mid to high 600s and so i thought it was time to try for other cards besides capitol one. I applied for and was approved for Amex blue cash, Juniper banks princess line visa signature, saks 5th avenues Mastercard world elite. I think that's about enough for now as I don't want to push my luck. at least they aren't sub-prime cards. how about everyone else. what have YOU been approved for??
That is good. Stay away from apping for more cards. Junie does not like it and if you app for too many cards they might reduce CL or even close your junie account. Wait at least 6 months before you app for any thing else.
I have excellent news. I've been reading this board for over a year now. I started when I was trying to buy a house in Texas Dec 2006. Anyway, I have the house but I've been trying to join the 700 club this past year. This past week my credit score jumped from 645 to 740 on Equifax. I had an old MC to finally drop off after the 7 year limit.
Absolutely nothing since November - and that was HSN with NO PULL (using a MC and they 'gave' me the card - didn't even really hurt age). I had said no apping - and I didn't app for it - it was a gift.
Now a member of the UNOFFICIAL 700 Club - Plus scores of 734-734-747
