Re: Your Goals for 2013!

For 2013 I want my FICO to be all above 760 by the end of the year, and my utilization to be kept  at <5% at all times. I’m planning another round of app spree of 2-3 more cards in April. But before that I’m going to request a CLI for my BCE. Its been way past my 61 days but AMEX hasnt softed me yet. I probably won’t request the full 3x as I’d be happy to get anything over $10,000, preferably $11,000. After the new limit has reported, I will app. I’ll be gunning for Chase Priority Club mainly for the points and the free night annually. Also I’m looking to app for Citi Dividend which ultimately I want the World Elite MasterCard version. This card would diversify my card portfolio with my banks and also I just really want the benefits of World Elite MasterCard. I have not been able to find out if I can directly apply for the World Elite version. If I do get this card, I’ll be changing my CSP from World MasterCard to a Visa Signature. I haven’t decided on my 3rd card yet but it’ll be either be an AMEX for back dating purposes or whatever card that has an outrageous reward or signup bonus.

AMEX: $0/$25,000, CSP: $0/$6500, Chase Priority Club: $0/$3500, Freedom: $0/$6000, Barclays NFL: $0/$7000 Discover: $0/$14,000, Citi Dividend: $0/$3500

EQ FICO - 728
TU FICO - 743
EX FICO(AMEX) - 712

Re: Your Goals for 2013!

My goals for the year were to get the Platinum Delta AMEX, and also get the CSP.  I knew I had a good chace to get the AMEXD but thought it would be a long shot to get the CSP becasue of a previous charge off with Chase and quite a few new accounts.  Applied for both this month and get accepted for both, I guess I need some new goals now!!!!!

Re: Your Goals for 2013!

My goal this year is to at least break the 700 mark on my scores all across the board, join the Discover family and to increase my limits substantially to go into 2014. I am on my way..... Went on a few major app sprees from August 2012 to January 2013 and I am determined to stay in the garden until my birthday in December for the Discover. So far this forum has helped me start up my credit and maintain my scores and grow my limits! I love this place! Smiley Very Happy

Current Score: TU 671 / EQ 675 / EX 682
Goal Score: 700 Club Across the board!

Re: Your Goals for 2013!

I would like to buy 3-5 small houses, join the amex revolver and discover families, and while I'm at it, perhaps a freedom or saphire. Lofty, I know, but 2013 lasts a long time.

Re: Your Goals for 2013!

After CLI on JP Morgan Select Visa in April to $10K, it's garden, garden...GARDEN! 

 

I've been very lucky already this year, with CLI and 2 new cards within the first few weeks of this new year.  I think my signature speaks for itself, and more importantly, speaks volumns about the GREAT information that one can glean from this site to improve one's situation.  I'm extremely grateful for the wisdom that can found on a site such as this and the camaraderie from it's participants !

EX = 828 EQ = 846 TU = 833 as of 02/2016

My goal is to get rid of most of my inquiries and let things just age. I opened 7 new credit card accounts and 4 new student loans in 2012 so I am sure it is hurting my score big time.

Re: Your Goals for 2013!

My goals are relatively simple for this year. I have already apped for pretty much all of the cards I need or want (might close my PRG when the annual fee time comes.) But the only cards I really want are the Chase Freedom and Amex BCE, and am planning to apply for it either on June 3rd or 4th. And hopefully a small CL (300 on BOFA to 1,000, 500 each on Discover and Citi to 2,000.) Other then that, I plan to garden until my income gets bigger, or I find another card I can acquire (that isn't a visa signature, my income probably won't let me qualify for a Visa Signature right now.) That's it for this year. 

Bank of America: Cash Rewards.- 4.2k. 4/25/12 (CLI Increase 6/15/13, CLI May of 2015, sept 2015), Citi: Forward- 4.5k. 10/27/12 (CLI on 2/8/14, SP, CLI on 9/26/15 sp). Discover: More- 7k, 10/27/12 (Increase 6/1/14, CLI in May of 2015, SP 9/2015) Amex: PRG- NPSL (closed 12/13/13). 11/24/12. Chase: Freedom. 5/1/13- 5k (EX CLI HP 9/2015) Southwest Rapid Rewards Plus.-3.6k. 6/15/13. Amex BCE-2k. 12/7/13. Amex SPG-5k 12/8/13 (CLI on 9/2015) Capital one VentureOne Visa Signature-10k (9/6/15). Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select World MasterCard-4K. Last App: 9/6/15. Total cl: 45,300
