Re: What have you been approved for recently?

who backed the 76 card? It seems that all the major banks back the different gas/ store cards. noone has their own small banks anymore.

A 2001 GMC Yukon XL.  (Husband's new 'toy' to carry around all his other 'toys'- he's a contractor...)  That's plenty for now!
 
Though, if there's a gas card that offers good cash back...  Hmm, that's a thought.  That thing is a beast compared to the Camry and Corolla!
 
Nothing else on the wishlist until I get BoA paid off, then I might do a product change to their Nature Conservancy card.

It's Citibank. I was actually holding my breath as I applied for it, because a year ago Citibank wouldn't even have approved me for a library card!

Re: What have you been approved for recently?

I've been lurking on this board off and on for a few years... Been working on major FICO clean up.
 
3 years ago, my average score was 473 (really) -- lots of old and ex hubby stuff. As of this week, my Experian hit 703! and I expect the other two to follow along shortly putting me over the 700 mark, just waiting on a few corrections to post.
 
Today, I applied for and was approved for Amex Blue $6000 -- Hooray!

Re: What have you been approved for recently?

Did my app spree this weekend. Scores didn't drop, actually went up a bit as things updated. Still waiting to see what is up with Transunion score. But here's my status:

WAMU $4,500 CL/0% BT until September, instant approval
Carnival $5,000 CL (rate is a bit high, but not the highest, so yay me!) Instant approval.

Got the dreaded 7-10 day wait message on the following:
Target
Walmart
Chevron
CITI Platinum

Opened my accounts with NASA and have decided to use it as way to save and will apply for LOC to back the checking after a ton of things fall off May 2008.

Goal - keep util below 10%. I expect decline on CITI, but we'll see. It's been just shy of 7 years since BK. Oh! And Carnival is already reporting! Brought my score up a substantial amount because of it!

Not applying for anything else. Want to age whatever I get and improve my average age of accounts.

Starting Score: EQ 622, TU 676, EX 643 (mtg lender pulls) 2/1/12
Current Score: EQ 743, TU 775 (6/18 MyFico), EX 722 (per CITI approval letter 6/29/12 pull)
Goal Score: New goal: 760+ on all 3
