Rejoicing! Approved for Apple Card and Turned It Down

I feel really good. I'm as tickled as the beautiful colors emanating from Apple/GS logo.

 

So finally, the Apple card populated in my wallet; and no, I did not get an email. I just checked my wallet and it was there.

 

I had already noted in an earlier post that I wanted to see a SL of at least $20K in order to temp me. (Honestly, I purposely put the SL high because I really do want to stay in the garden until April 2020.)

 

Well I did It! I clickied "No Thanks" to the SL of $7.5K. Now what surprised me was the 12.99% APR offered because so many others had been getting an APR of 17.99 - 23.99% with high scores. My score--790.

 

I did it! I stuck to my guns. I turned a CC down cold. It's a darn good feeling to reject a CC approval.

 

EDIT: Finally got the photo to upload.

That's because it was for $7.5K. I'm almost certain a $20K SL would have had me sitting on the edge of my seat. Smiley Very Happy

Maybe the decline will enrage the computer lol. "WHAT?! A decline on the apple card?!" But-but- did we mention its metal?! I wonder if pink and grey will have the same fortitude
