First Victory!

I am really suprised how good getting my first instant approval felt!!  It was only a Walmart store card, and the limit is only $700, but it's my first instant approval since this process started!  (at least I'm guessing it's a store card and not a discover card)

 

I'm one step closer to prime-ville!

Re: First Victory!

My EQ FICO is 666, my last TU FICO was 600, but that was a few months ago.  I'm not sure which Walmart pulled, I haven't gotten an alert yet.  I may have been able to get this card earlier, but I'm seriously application gun shy because of rejections in the past.

Re: First Victory!

I dont blame you... just got approved for a BoA CC 3K 2.5 weeks ago. I dont have my FICO score but  my FAKO with USAA is EX 596 EQ 596 and TU 652 (was successful with getting 2 neg TLs removed by Cap1). I dont like rejections!!!

I may hold off with applying for 6months

 

Where did you pull your EQ and TU (Thanks for sharing)

 

Once again congrats

Re: First Victory!

I pulled both FICO scores from this site.  While rebuilding, I am using the ScoreWatch product from here for the EQ Fico and the quarterly monitoring for the TU98 (I think) FICO.  This Walmart card will also give me access to a free monthly TU08 (I think) FICO, so that's good.  I also use the USAA Credit Monitoring Premium service that allows me to pull all 3 reports every day.  

 

My situation is definitely improving, but man it's hard to be patient!
