Wolf3 40 Month Milestone.

I started rebuilding 40 monts ago.   I was AU on my wifes Sears MC (CITI), the ony card she had left.

 

My first app was a US Bank secured card.   Denied!!  

 

3 secured cards followed in the next year, Then some store cards in the following year.

 

I got 2 major cards from HSBC and Capital One after having their secured cards for about 1.5 years each.

 

I have be declined for 3 major cards with other banks this year. But, just recently got some store cards with big limits.

 

Today I recieved my first major card not preceded by a secured card.  It is a cobranded REI Visa from US Bank $4500 CL. ( come full circle).

 

So I am claiming victory in my journey to primeville.  

 

 

P.S.   Same day's mail had another AMEX green card invitaion ( in the shredder ).

Re: Wolf3 40 Month Milestone.

I'd like to get that REI card someday.  I heard they are a tough nut to crack w/ approvals

Re: Wolf3 40 Month Milestone.

I was declined for it  early last year.   

 

If it ever gets upgraded to Signature card, then that will be a another big milestone.   Maybe in a few years, when the negatives drop off my report.
