PayPal Approval!!!

Well, I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger and I'm glad I did.... I received an instant credit decision with a CL of $1,500 my largest by far!  I had received 'invitations to apply' for the past few months but never hit the button.

 

I decided to apply after my 3 tax liens were withdrawn from my credit file just a few days ago.  My question is should I try another card now? I really would like another prime like a Discover.  I had tried Chase and Barclays in September and was declined due to lack of revolving credit history.

 

My current util is 7%.

Re: PayPal Approval!!!

I think you stand a good chance with capital one. My husband was approved with a 3K limit when his score was roughly 620. I wanted to ask, how did you get your tax liens released? I have one for a piddly $138 and can't seem to get rid of it. Who did you contact?

Well, the IRS has a program to release tax liens...

 

Is yours IRS or state?

Re: PayPal Approval!!!

If it is a federal lien, you can request to have them withdrawn if you meet certain criteria ( basically paying/making arrangements or if they are paid).   The whole process took less than 5 weeks!

 

If you like, you can pm me for more detailed information.
