Lots of Amex Love!

So I've had an Amex Everyday for two months so I went for the 3x CLI from $1k to $3k yesterday and that got approved! I applied for the PRG today since I've been eyeing that for a while and that got approved today as well! Thanks to the knowledge I acquired from this forum, I figured I'd maximize that hard pull and applied for the BCE immediately after, got approved for $2k!

 

As someone who's 19 and has a credit history of only 8 months, this website has been such a wealth of knowledge, thank you all so much!

Amex reported my Experian score at the time of application as 696, AAoA 4 months, History 8 months, $1.6k Credit available prior to my little spree.

Re: Lots of Amex Love!

Just to add some data points for my ED card:

1st statement (6/23-7/22): $1,121.14

-1st payment: $812.61 (7/2)

-2nd payment: $308.53 (7/22, PIF)

 

2nd Statement (7/23-8/23): $1,213.25

-1st payment: $305.59 (8/7)

-2nd payment: $384.17 (8/17)

-3rd payment: $491.08 (8/23, PIF)

 

Tried to keep my utlization below 30%, definitely failed during the second statement because I had a lot of spending to do for school about to start back up Smiley Tongue

Re: Lots of Amex Love!

Congratulations! I should try for CLI on my Amex. They told me it's a 50/50 chance of a HP So I've been holding back. Just waiting to see if they give me auto LUV but so far nothing. . . Congratulations again!
