Been working to maximize my credit profile before apping a few cards. For a full recap see here.
Here are my app results including DPs:
CSR - $26,800 (pulled EX and TU - received 30 day message. Called in and approved.)
Citi DC - $7,500 (first Citi account - pulled EX and EQ. Called in and used an expired mail offer for $100 SUB. It was 4 days past the 'respond by' date)
Uber - $11,600 (reallocated from Arrival+ - pulled TU)
I also recently got a SP CLI from BOA to $20k!
Didn't check my scores until after the apps... but they are now:
EX 737 (3 inq)
EQ 751 (4 inq)
TU 730 (4 inq)
Oldest Account: 11 years, 8 months
AAoA: varies between 5 years, 2 months and 6 years depending on bureau
Util 26% on EX and EQ, 33% on TU (waiting to update)
Lower 6 figure salary
Chase surprised me for sure... they are now my highest limit. Closed a couple accounts as well so will see where my scores settle once everything reports.
All in all I couldn't be happier and have absolutely no need for anything new in the foreseeable future. I'm a little miffed with Barclays. Part of me wishes I had just closed the account as I originally intended but after reading others' success in opening a new card and transferring the CL before the Mercury conversion I figured why not. *wrong thinking* my app went under review and when I called in they declined my app . Anyway, spoke with a supervisor and just had my Arrival+ CL transferred over to open the Uber account. Meh. I'll be using it specifically to pay my phone bill and streaming services. Otherwise it will be SD'd and used as a backup international travel card.
Hope these DPs help someone. Cheers!
Very nice work, gd. Well played. Congrats!
And thank you for sharing extensive DPs.
