AMEX Delta SkyMiles Platinum Approval

Good Afternoon!

 

I told myself I was in the garden after getting declined by Chase due to 5/24 (For some reason I didn't think store cards counted). That being said, I decided to go snoop around the Amex site today since the Delta card was on my "want to get in the future" list, although I burned them with a collection about 10 years ago. I was plesently shocked when the pre-approval came back with the 3 Delta cards. Decided to pull the trigger on the Platinum and was approved with a $2,700 limit. Not a high limit by any regards, but hopefully this one grows with me over time (unlike that CapOne QS1 I picked up when I started my rebuild).

 

Experian at the time was 646

18 inquires (bought a car about 6 months ago, so that number is stupid high)

1 Collection (paid)

 

Today was a good day

Starting Score: 561
Current Score: 667
Goal Score: 760
