My 6 months old amazing credit history!

After reading alot on here i just want to share my credit story, i moved to the US in August 2018, i applied and got my social security early September 2018, i applied for Wells Fargo Secured Card around September 27th 2018, i deposited $300, when the card was mailed to me i was charged the $25 annual fee, immediately it was reported and i had a credit file opened with the CRAs, i bought a car and paid 70% of it and the dealership agreed on financing the remaining 30% plus i really wanted to use it to build credit too. I gave them my Socials in September 2018 and it also reported to my credit but it reported as opened in August because the car was bought in August ending but i had no SSN then, in November 2018 when my second statement cut on Wells Fargo, i took a nasty leap of faith lol and applied for Capital One Quicksilver One, i wasn't approved on the spot online but i was told someone will contact me, they sent me an email to respond with a scan copy of my SSN and my passport which i did i then got an unsecured credit card of $300. I started charging the 2 cards wisely and paying off the car too
Two months of having the Capital One i read it on here by the experienced people on here about hitting the LUV button before my credit step that is due in May 2019 take place, i hit that button sometime in January 2019 and i was given $100 limit increase... Smiley Happy Now i am waiting for my credit step that will kick in in two months.

On February 4th 2019 my FICO score was generated based on my credit history hitting 6 months and i checked on Experian and my credit score is now 720 and 704 on TU and EQ respectively... It feels so good to see it change. Below is a screenshot link... Smiley Happy
