Hello r1lukasz!  Congrats on your new home!   :smileyhappy:

that's a great FICO!  With a score like that, you should have no problem getting good cards.  The issue will be the starting limit.  Some lenders prefer that you have some expereince with +5K limits.  Tell us what types of reward structure your looking for and maybe some can advise.  How long have you had your current unsecured cards?  First cards that come to mind are:  Amex BCE/BCP- ( if you get a sub 5K limit to start, it will likely grow fast). Chase Freedom- Discover More- mind you - all the cards listed will have a higher APR because they are rewards cards.  If you don't care about rewards, then I strongly recommend a CU card.  They will likely give you a very good limit and the lowest of any APRs.  My CU card's highest APR is 9.65% with a 25K limit and the next is 8.99% with a 10K limit.  Gotta love CUs.   


Starting Score: 642
Current Score: EQ 773, EX 780, TU 777 (All FICO)
Goal Score: 800+

Cards: NFCU Flagship 50K, DC 30K, BCP 28.6K, Arrival+ 25K, Citi DP 22.8K, CSP 20.5K, TotalRewards 20.5K, QuickSilver 20K

You should join NFCU if you can. An score that high would get you an Vise Sig card with them probably in $ 20,000!

Re: good credit need more cards please advise

thx , I don't care about rewards just will be nice to have more cards with bigger credit limits and low apr , capital one is 18% 5 years ,citi is 11 months with 0% till June 2013 after that 12% , Its ok if they start me low with CL with future increase not like Cap1 they absolutely refuse to increase my limit . So was thinking about Amex but witch one ?

NFCU visa signature  looks good but its not 49$ annual fee , how about Platinum?

Re: good credit need more cards please advise

I really see no point in getting the Navy Signature and paying the annual fee to save 2% possibly....

We have Visa Cash and it was recently converted over to a Signature Card and it's 10.65% - 1% for the first $10k in charges a year then 1.5% for any charges over $10k for the remainder of the year.

Fico Scores: EQ- 626 Overstck., TU 696 Walmart, EX 695 Chase (11-05-14)
You will have to put up Electric Fence to keep me in the garden!
Highest Limit: Navy Federal Cash Sigi Visa $50k (AU)
Lowest Limit: Target $200
66 Cards and Counting :smileytongue:

Looks like PenFed promise offers the lowest APR right now: 9.99%

 

With your credit scores, you're guaranteed a high limit, so I wouldn't worry about this.

9.99% is definitely not the lowest available APR.
