Known EQ pullers ...... Langley FCU, DCU, Alliant, PenFed
All Cedit Unions but CU's are definitely a good mix into a portfolio.
Synchrony guards their majors a lot more than their store cards. You’re usually in for a 4-6 month wait for a CLI on a Sync major and for some reason, they’re very stingy with Marvel. The largest SL I have seen on one lately (going back about halfway through last year) was $2K.
Comgrats on your successes though! Lots of doors should be open to you shortly as AJC said.
I see that you're a new member. Welcome to the myFICO forum!
Super Congrats on your rebuild! You must feel immensely relieved
and satisfied to have 3 squeaky clean credit files. Very well done!
+1 on the previous advice given regarding applying with credit unions
like PenFed. PenFed hard pulls Equifax, and they use Equifax FICO 9
for their loan decisions. Specifically, forum members like myself who
are also PenFed members have reported that an EQ9 650 or higher
is needed for the Promise Visa (PenFed's most popular card), and an
EQ9 680 or higher for premium cards like Amex Pathfinder and Visa
2% Power Cash Rewards. PenFed hard pulls are typically good for up
to 90 days, so make sure and verify this before apping for cards.
Note: If you'd like to know your FICO 9 scores before applying,
you can always pull them here at myFICO. All things being equal,
F9 scores tend to be a bit higher than F8s. Your mileage may vary.
You made a really smart move getting the Amex Gold. Would recommend
using that card for at least 3-4 statements and PIF before the statement closes.
By the Aug/Sept 2019 timeframe your EX8 should be back over 700, you should
see pre-approved offers on your Amex account page, or both.
Once again, congratulations on your rebuild and your approvals.
Please feel free to keep us posted on your progress. Thanks for sharing!
