Looks like most approvals are in the 670+ range. I don't think that Citi will approve your score.


Starting Score 5/06/10: TU: 671 EQ: 633 EX: ???
Current Score 2/05/11: TU: 790 EQ: 782 EX: 745
Goal Score: 800

thanks for the quick reply, i didnt think they would approve me at 605. was going to apply in 2 months when my collection got removed and i payed my revolving balance down a bit. but i think my score will only go to maybe 630 once i got those items done. good to know not to apply till score hits 670ish i dont want to apply till im sure i will get approved.

You might even wait until you are in the 700 club. I recently was approved for Citi Diamond Preferred and it was a crappy $1200 CL. I know it will grow with them, but I had 3 Plat accounts with Citi back in 2003 (all closed by me with perfect history) and they were all in the $5k CL range. I think that Citi has really tightened up their approvals and CL's.

 

Good luck to you whenever you decide to pull the trigger! Keep us posted!  :smileyhappy:

Re: what score to get home depot card?

I was just approved for the Home Depot card in December, my equifax score was 631. My utilization was about 14% and my AAoA was 6.9 yrs.

 

Mind you my credit limit was only $500.
