Sounds like you stayed patient and didn't go apping until you got your scores where you wanted them. Nice work!

AMEX just reduced my limit on my Hilton Honors from 19k to $8,200. I have a $7,100 balance with 3.9% for life, but my utilization will now suffer.

 

So I app'd for 5 new cards on Friday.

 

Lexus Visa - They pulled TU, 7-10 day message

Wamu Platinum - They pulled TU, $5,000 instant

Wells Fargo - They pulled EX, $9,000 instant (I have my mortgage with them)

Citi Diamond Preferred - They pulled EQ, $3,000 instant

Bank of America - They pulled EQ - $7,000 instant

 

I am in DE & my EQ score is 747. Not sure of the others but I think lower because I have more inquiries on those (20+ as opposed to EQ only 5)

Thanks Haulingthescoreup!  That was exactly my plan.  Believe me, I got an itch a time or twenty Smiley Wink  I had my little Orchard Bank card, which was good for the time being, I wanted to make sure I was ready. Feels good though!

Re: Just got approved for credit card?? What's your score?

Three weeks ago I apped for three (all within 4 days of each other):  Citi Plat ($7k cl), BoA Plat ($12k) and Exxon/Mobil ($1k).  All approved.

 

All three now show up on EX and EQ, only BoA showing on TU (as of today).

 

I haven't pulled FICOs for EX and TU yet, but thru ScoreWatch, my EQ score fell 23 pts for the new accts.  All inqs were on EX.
