PayPal 2% Cashback MC Approval DP

Hello again MyFICO fam!

 

Just wanted to share some datapoints on my PayPal 2% Cashback MC approval this morning. I’ve had my PayPal account for 5+ years and have been getting a lot of marketing emails, for the past year, inviting me to apply for credit. I use PayPal probably once ore twice per month regularly for subscriptions and on occasion, if I purchase something on eBay. Nothing spectacular. Lol.

 

As expected, they pulled TU. Instant approval. 

TU Fico 8: 662

Util: 14%

Inq: 11/12mo, now 12/12mo

New accounts: 11/12mo

SL: $2,500

 

If I’m leaving anything out, let me know. 

 

I’m pretty excited. In the past 30 days or so, I’ve added $10.8k to my overall CL. Lowe’s “DoubleTap” (Shout out to AJC) CLI from $500 to $5k, the Comenity “DoubleTap” CLI from $3350 to $6350, Walmart CLI from $200 to $1k and this approval. 

 

Again, thank you all for sharing your experiences and for helping us all to better understand this crazy world of credit. Much Love!

Thank you!

 

It’s “double dip” but AJC pointed out that the term can only be used for a back to back CLI with Disco. All other back to back CLI requests/approvals must be referred to as a “DoubleTap”. 😆

Congrats WE1! I've been putting some heavy daily spend through my PP CB MC since I received it last month, hoping to get the limit higher. Since it's Synch, I'm sure it will happen eventually!

Thank you! 

 

If there’s anything almost certain in this credit world, it’s that Synch will throw MO MONEY at you! Lol. Good luck!

Thank you! I’m pumped. And, I’m really kind of shocked with that SL.

 

That’s some great growth! Was it one big CLI or multiples? I’m also curious if all CLI’s are auto or if there is a LUV button. Lol. #LookinForLuvInAllTheWrongPlaces

Yep. So far, Synch has only pulled TU for all my apps with them. Just judging by your scores, you’ve got a great shot! IMHO, of course. Good luck to you!
