actually mine has not taken long at all. Have had several PFD that worked, and believe it or not, the inquiries only dropped my score by 2 points.....so knock on wood.....so far so good. I had one score that jumped 152 points within a month!!!! It's how you work the system, baby!!!!!Smiley Wink

Re: dog's new t/l confession...

I applied today for the first cards I tried in a long time! Three amex cards and as of now, it's only reporting one inquiry on my experian report.

I should only have applied for the one.  I forget that not all places accept amex cards because they charge the merchant more money.
