My scores for this were 762 Equifax/ 756 Experian/ 762 TransUnion with 0% utilization 1 inquiry and zero negatives.
1.) PenFed Rewards Amex
I joined today and immediately applied for a card, they sent an email wanting I.D/Pay stub/ Utility bill/Social security card before considering my application.
2.) NavyFed Platinum approved for 10K
3.) USAA Signature Visa approved for 25K
4.) Discover IT approved for 20K
5.) Blispay approved for 7.5K
6.) Chase Freedom approved for 21K
7.) Chase Slate I submitted the app and it must have timed out because I didn't get an approval or denial. ***Update*** Applied again today and got approved for 11.8K
8.) Citi Simplicity Denied
9.) Amex Everyday Denied they sent a counter offer with a garbage card with a $500 limit and I declined it
10.) Tried for a secon NavyFed card and was denied.
Would I have had better results if I had the apps all filled out and sent at the same time? I kind of took a break for dinner halfway and started getting alerts about new inquiries so I'm really kicking myself for not planning better. Hopefully that wasn't a factor but I'm not a pro like some of you.
Congrats on apps spree approval and all nice SL
I apped again for the Chase Slate today and got approved for 11.8K. I really wanted a couple of Citi cards but it looks like I messed up on those.
Because we're not allowed to discuss locking or freezing reports for the purpose of manipulating applications, we're not going to be able to advise you on that. Discussion of locks or freezes for the sake of security is allowed.
I was interested in the Chase cards for some balance transfers to help out a family member. I guess I had some misconceptions that applying for everything in a few days was the best route. I don't really plan on getting anything else in the near future so hopefully I'll be ok. Thanks to everyone for your help.
