Re: Gunning for Amex today

Re: Gunning for Amex today

3 hard pulls for 1k limit is a tough pill to swallow but in the big picture, its no big deal.  The real bruiser is they pulled my EQ which was going to be just about perfect in a couple days(5 INQ's falling off, leaving 4) so I could app for my final card, USAA World MC. Really need to break into 5k+ limit territory.

*USAA WORLD MC 18k* *USAA VISA 12k* *AMEX BCE 10k* *DISCOVER IT 15k* *AMEX ZYNC* *B of A SIGNATURE CASH 15k* *NAVY FEDERAL PLATINUM 20k* *CITI DOUBLE CASH 15k* *Veridian CU 14k* *Barclays Apple 12.5k*

Yep, on the phone as I type this. The rep is much more helpful and is attempting to verify my address by contacting my bank so hopefully I can avoid having to mail anything and get answer immediately......stay tuned

I had to go through this with my Zync card when I app'd for it. Congrats on the approval though!
