Approved - Kay Jewlers

[ Edited ]

Was approved for Kay Jewlers card last night, $3200 CL.


Had the following on my report:


TU Score - 633

Utilizaltion - 70% (before)

Lates - numerous 30, 60, 90, a few 120, a few 150


It will bring my AAoA down some, but I think it will be for the better overall.
