Which card is good for me??

Trying to decide on a card to app for. I have about 50% usage. AAoA is 1.1 years. And I have about 5 inquiries. No baddies. FICO is about 660.

Will any prime lenders consider me??

Not with the high util. Get that down to 10% then app.

 

What kind of card rewards are you looking for??

It's still a bit high. If they approve you it will be a toy limit.

I'd app for Discover IT or Chase Freedom.

Nobody goes crazy over common knowledge here. High util is a definite no no on new apps. Its purely YMMV if youll be approved and if you do get approved it will more than likely be a low limit.

 

And wait for it.....$1500 is that low limit!

 

Wouldnt be surprised at all if Discover is $1000 or lower.
