I did pretty well last year!
My first credit card (Captial One) increased my CL from $500 to $2000.
My second credit card (Discover It) increased my CL from $750 to $1250.
I got an Amazon Chase card with a CL of $2000 and then increased to $4000.
A few days ago I got an Amex Blue Everyday with a CL of $7500.
Now I have four credit cards with a combined CL of $14750.
My Fico score was close to 750 at some point, but my AAoA is too short so I might not be able to hit that score anyways.
Credit Score 2013 Goal
I got my first credit card in May 2012 (CL: $500) and got my second in March 2013 (CL: $750). My current TU score is 689, (was 734 before I got my second credit card).
In August, 2013 I'll have my SSN for two years, and then I'll be able to check my FICO score. Now I can only see my TU score via Credit Karma.
My Goal in 2013:
- Get a FICO score of 750+ by the end of 2013!
- Get a total credit limit of $2000+
