I went on an app spree and was triple approved! Hilton Amex, Discover IT, Chase Freedom Unlimited

I am trying to rebuild and expand my credit portfolio and honestly didn't think I would be approved for anything. I checked my FICO and had EXP 728, EQIF 658, TU 637. I decided to roll the dice and see how I did with Chase Freedom Unlimited and instant approval $1500. Applied for the Discover IT and instant approval $6500. I really wanted to get in the Amex family and did the pre-qualify tool and it came back with no offers. I researched and saw Amex mostly pulls EXP which was my best score. I considered applying for the blue or gold but ultimately decided Hilton was best for me since I enjoy attending numerous conventions throughout the year and staying in Hilton. I rolled the dice again and was approved for the Hilton Honors Amex with a $10K limit with 80K Honors points reward. I'm stopping there and am going to treat these very carefully and nurse them over the next year. It feels good to be rebuilding my credit and handling it more maturely than I did in my younger years. I just wanted to share my excited news!
