Good morning all! This forum has been a blessing and has provided me both guidance and motivation after my discharge.
On 1 Nov I was expecting an auto CLI on the Unsecured C1 platinum as I was aware that it was in the step program. I was also on the forums that day and came across a C1 link that allowed you to see if any of my already issued cards were eligible for PC. I followed the link and received a pop up that stated my unsecured platinum card was eligible for PC to QS with no annual fee. I accepted it and was told I was approved and could start receiving rewards immediately with my current card until my new card arrived. The next day on 2 NOV I received my CLI to $500.
On 8 Nov I applied for both Barclay Apple Rewards and Kohl’s and was approved for both.
Kohl’s was an instant $300 approval (did not recon) and Barclay sent me an email stating that they needed 10 days to review my application, however there was a number provided and I called. The number was to their customer security department and after a few verification questions I was approved for $2500.
I now plan to stay in the garden until the one year anniversary of my discharge date 1 March 2019, at which time I plan to apply for the Amazon credit card.
I also pray that my capital one secured card unsecures at the 11 month/1 year mark.
Here is a quick look at my rebuild over the last 8 months:
Cap 1 (secured): March $200/ Aug $500 Cap 1 Plat: May $300/ 1 Nov $500 (PC to Quicksilver) Target: July $500 Star Card: Aug $4,075 Kohl’s: Nov $300 Barclay Apple: Nov $2500
