Re: next credit card step?

 

I would approach it from the perspective of your credit reports/FICO score ~ do any of them look a lot better or worse than the others ? 

 

Amex usually pulls EX, Chase pulls EQ i think, barclays pulls TU.....

March2010 FICO® ~ 695 TU, 653 EQ, 697 EX

Re: next credit card step?

Not sure what your CRs look like but I believe chase wants to see 2 yrs worth of creditcard credit before giving you a card.  I think thats the last thing I remember when I spoke to one of their CSRs.  Maybe someone else can chime in

Chase has only ever pulled EX for me. Same with Bank of America.

Re: next credit card step?
