Well I thought I waa done there and decided what the beck I want all of my accounts to age together so I went for it.
USAA rate advantage preselected offer in my offers and I was denied. BUT they said "but you're approved for
USAA classic platinum visa: instant approved SL $1000 HP EX
Care Credit: instant approval for $7000. Recon today to $7500. Plenty for me. HP TU
Discover! It!: instant approval for $10k. I had to call to find out the SL. Almost fell outta my chair. Stayed calm and said ok thank you. Called in again today and asked again just to make sure. Lol! Unbelievable. And still no HP
Cap1 Plat. Preferred: 7-10 day message. HP on all 3( as usual ugh!) Tried calling every backdoor number there is and they all said "closed until normal business hours". Got a call at 4:42 pm and missed it. VM said it is the fraud department calling to verify that I applied. That's a good sign. Rather than an instant denial. She said call back by 5pm. Missed my oplortunity. Will call tomorrow and find out if they answer being that tomorrow is holiday. And update then.
AMEX BCE: no prequal offers ever for me. Cold app. Instant approval $1k. Then I said what the heck. HP EX
AMEX Delta Blue Miles: instant approval. NPSL
EDIT: all these apps were done between 6pm(NFCU) and then the rest (8pm-11pm) last night. So all yesterday within hours.
NEW EDIT: PS everyone. I forgot to mention. I was denied by discover 2 months ago and now they are my highest SL/CL. Weird right? Just don't give up if you're trying. Patience is key. As everyone else on here says building credit is a marathon not a sprint!
Whew! What a rush. From $0(negative $500 charged off) to $30k+ in a year with hard work on my credit. I read this forums everyday. Yeah I mean everyday. Anything and everything. And now try to help family and friends with theirs too. So as stated before I know this was quite the spree. I know many advise against it but I had nothing to lose as I will be heading to tje garden anyway until I have 0 inquires on all reports. Sorry for the long post. But I'm quite excited to be in with prime banks and can't wait for the cards to get here and head to the garden. Thanks for all the advice on here. Any further questions just ask.

Congrats, that is certainly a list of cards you can stick with and grow.
For the AMEX Delta Blue, you note that is NPSL. This is a credit card, correct? Or did you go for one of the AMEX Chargers?
Wow, One heck of a run there. Congrats
From my understand it is a charge card. As they did not tell me a limit on it when approved. I will find out when I get it in the mail but I think most of their partner carda such as Hilton PRG etc. Are in fact charge cards. Also you can only apply for 1 revolver and 1 charger in a certain amount of days also. So this is a charge card going off of all of those facts.
It is their newest charge card I believe. Which is why I chose it because theres no annual fee. As of yet! As well as 10,000 bonus miles after spending $500 in first 3 months. While several other cards offer a similar SUB, none of them do so without an annual fee. Which is why I went with Delta Blue. In case you're interested.
Wow.... Congrats I guess, seems like a major app spree - good thing you didn't have any Comenity cards
