Nordstrom Visa- 1500$! First Primary Card!

I am so excited! After having some issues with a Discover It Secured card, I decided to apply for the Nordstrom card in my mind I  figured if I get approved for the Visa, awesome but the store card would benefit me as well. Well I did the online app, and got a message to call in, after a verification phone call they told me I was approved for Nordstrom Visa for 1500$ I was estatic. 

 

This is my first primary card after having horrible credit since I was 19 and messing up some AMEX cards in my name. Currently, I have this card, a Capital One QS1 I am an AU on with 500$ limit, A loan from Onemain (this was to establish loan history) for 3200$, Currently my Credit Karma Score is TU 677 and EQ 655. My FICO8 score with Experian is 744

congrats! by the way don't pay any attention to Credit Karma. Those scores are fake. The magic is in the FICO scores.

 

again congrats! :-)

Is the Experian website a pretty reliable source for credit scores?

Congrats!

Looks like you're chipping away at some of the damage from earlier missteps in your credit use.

 

I know that feeling.. but for me, after only about 2 to 3 years I'm pretty happy with where I am and other than some judicious and responsible use along with pure time, I'm quite happy with where I am... and I'm sure you can be the same!  Congrats and good luck long term!
