So I started 1 year 3 months ago, 27 negative items.. Credit score 554.
Today I pulled it: nothing left, 9 inquirys removed..725 Experian, 720 EQ and TU don't know but assume much higher being that it is TU.
all I have had up until now is secured cards $300 CL's so when I got an offer for a credit card with Citibank, 18 months no interest, cash back, 12.99% I interest I thought I'd be lucky to get a $500 CL. They came back with $6500.00 I'm feeling a bit like an adult now, little nervous but I earned this. It was a lot if work but it paid off.
Thanks everyone for your help this last year.
This board has been invaluable.

Re: $6500 credit line!

Ya know, I just went to a class on home buying which is where I am at in my journey.
I am hoping opening this $6500 CL was not a mistake.

Re: $6500 credit line!

Congrats your approval!

 

And if you plan on buying a home I would just stick with that CL until you close on your new home.  I don't believe that it will hurt your chances at all.  Wait at least 6 months before you mortgage app and keep your utili low.  You'll be just fine getting approved for a home.

Re: $6500 credit line!

Would if I need to buy in 2-3 months and I have a limited income, do you think it is going to be a problem that I gained credit before buying?
