Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge for 2013!

Looking at my report, most of my delinquencies will be 2+ years old by December. A TD Bank auto loan that I cosigned on (that is now paid off) went delinquent twice in 2012, so those are more recent.

 

For my new auto loan, I agree, that 1.9% is very attractive, almost too good to be true. To get that loan, I went to a local Ford dealership (Autofair Ford), and got the loan through Ford Motor Credit. The dealership definitely tried a few big name banks first (I got 3 denial letters in the mail a few weeks later). However, FMC ultimately approved the loan. 72 months is of course a long time, but now the car is completely warranteed throughout the life of the loan.

Woo hoo!  Got this email from Capital One today:

 

"You're a great customer, and we appreciate you. That's why we're happy to give
you a credit line increase - you deserve it!
Your new credit line is $1,500.00.
That's an increase of $1,000.00."

 

 

YAY - hopefully this will give me a good FICO boost soon.

Re: Take the myFICO Fitness Challenge for 2013!

Hi Charlie!

 

I actually have two cards from Cap One.  Last year I got a secured card from them, and then about six months ago I applied for a "regular" card (platinum?) and was approved.  I have been paying in full every month for almost a year on secured card, and for 6 months on unsecured card.

 

secured - $300 limit, opened 6/12, 22.9% APR

unsecured - $1500 limit, opened 11/12, 0% APR
