AMEX Blue Approval

[ Edited ]

So after much rebuilding, I just apped for the regular AMEX Blue Card and got instant approval online. Seems so silly but it feels like this marks me finally making it out of credit hell. :-P

 

If it helps anyone to know, my EQ is 740 as of today, and EX Fako is 726. TU typically hovers around 700-720, though I haven't checked it recently. AAoA is 6 years, credit util at 5%, no collections, tons of student loans, last late payment was over a year ago and no serious delinquents.

 

BTW, I'm dying to know what my CL is... anyone know which backdoor number I would use to find that out?  **EDIT, Nevermind, found it... $8100!


Starting Scores July 2012: EQ FICO 645, TU FICO 636, EXP (CCT) 638
Feb 2015 Scores: EQ FICO 758, TU FICO 753, EX 749

Re: AMEX Blue Approval

Thank you for the congrats! I called and listened to the automated app status twice just to make sure I wasn't hearing things. :-P
