Re: amazing american express approval

HAPPY BIRTHDAY,  mrcrush20!


Congrats on your success!


Although you are "much older now", you're in the perfect position to nurture your credit in the garden and watch it grow.  I hope you'll do just that. 


You'll be amazed at how well the good credit you establish now will work for you in the future, when you'll actually need it for things like cars, homes and other opps.


Again, congrats to you, old man!!  Smiley Happy

Re: amazing american express approval


humm well lets see income i just notched 75k about 10K higher then the last app i did wiht amex about 2 months ago. The only debt i have is the open balances for CC wich total about 1500... my aaoa is 1 year thanks to my appsprea over the last 10 months. time at employer 5 years one month wich amx app did NOT ask for... now that i think about..... or i was still asleep when i filled out the app i cant remember putting that. 


one last thing.. one of my accounts became 100% vested over the last 30 days so it added 10K to my worth that i included in the app. 


I am older and wiser today THANKS to the members of HAPPY 24th Mrcrush :]


and thanks for the birthday wishes!!
