Does Amex look down on inquiry's? I was dumb and regretfully applied for the hooters card a while ago and I wonder if they would deny just for that.
amex didnt seen to care when i apped for my gold card in april
i had 4 inquires and 3 new accounts from less then 6 months
what are my realistic chances of getting in with amex with what ive got going on?
661 EQ Fico
664 TU True credit =/
774 Experian Fako
Ive got a 6 year old repo with a 0 balance, 1 baddie on EQ for $388 for unpaid med debt, 2 student loans with some lates - last one being 6 months ago.
Cap1 500.00 (new account opened in april)
all my credit cards are at 0 balance with perfect payment history and i pif every time.
what really need is a card with a decent credit limit or something reputable that i can start growing with. after june i should have 3 inq on TU, 2 on EQ and 2 on experian. what are my chances of being approved with amex right now for a zync and what other cards should i try for? I want to app 1 more time and then i plan to garden until 2013 when my last baddie (repo) falls off.
Hard to guess what they really look for but they just approved me so I'll think you have a good shot. I really thought my scores would kill it. I had an Amex back in 92 and saw the backdating thread. Thought to give it a shot and see if I could open a line with them to take advantage of that. The card was approved, now just have to see if I can get them to backdate it.
My EQ was 619 as of 6/7/11. My TU was 634 as of 6/7/11 also. Not sure what it is today as between then and now I paid off a third car loan.
Both reports show an active collection for an old Sprint account that comes and goes.
A paid collection on a gas bill from 5 years ago.
A paid state tax lien from 1.5 years ago. (came outta nowhere, bam. Seriously. $120...)
Have no lates in three years.
