I wish I could have these hunches with the horses or the lottery!

Hello everybody,

 

Every so often, I get a hunch that I will get lucky with an app or two. The last couple of days are a fine example of how this happens.

 

On Saturday, I joined Sam's Club, using an online link that gave me a $10 gift card, $25 in Vudu credits and a free pizza. I then decided to go for their card. Instant approval, $2,400 temporary limit.

 

Tonight, I got a hunch on Fifth Third's Stand Up 2 Cancer Mastercard. I had been turned down for this card about a year ago due to my credit score at the time. I was concerned about Fifth Third being conservative and/or inquiry sensitive, but something told me to go for it. Instant approval, $6,500 SL.

 

I wish I could do this with the horses or the lottery. Smiley Wink

 

Here are the datapoints: TU - 736. A lot of inquiries and accounts in the last 17 months.

 

Back to the garden I go. 

Three months and counting...
