  1. I hear you loud and clear. Though I started in a different boat 2 years ago in that I never had credit to begin with and had to start from scratch late in my life. With the credit I've built it's helped me pay for a vacation and got me a good rate on a used car loan for having such short credit history. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. I was approved after recon for blispay with a $6000 sl. Going to use it to finance a car stereo upgrade. After that use it for stuff like new tires, or any other not small but not super large purchase. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  3. Upped my discover card from $7500 to $11200 and doubled my amex from $8000 to $16000. Though I was denied by blisplay only because they couldn't verify me somehow. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. PayPal 2% cash back 5k > 7.5k. I should have asked for more but I'm fine with whatever I get. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Hit the luv button with discover got a 2.5k increase. Went from 5k to a 7.5k limit. Opened it back in June of last year with a starting limit of 2k. Getting to 7.5k already feels good so early in my credit journey. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  6. Keep cultivating and growing my current cards limits and get my end the year with scores higher than they are now. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. I got an additional $1,500 on my Google store account through synchrony. My first of many increases I look forward to this year. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. NFC is the future. Most terminals can do it just need an update or something to turn the feature on. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  9. Got a 1k increase on my discover card via the luv button. Still amazed at how much available credit I've amassed in just over a year with responsible use. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. Mailers for cards from Chase, Citi and BOA. First mailers from bigger places unlike surge card and credit one mailers. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. Just got my paypal 2% back card increased from 3k to 5k. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  12. The IRS is the same way when it comes to payments. When I first started submitting payments for a family member it wanted to use a phone number to identify her but it wouldn't allow that since they had prepaid service. Now I have that problem plus an additional one. My carrier shows up as a VoIP connection so certain services won't verify me over the phone.
  13. $2,000 increase on my Discover card bringing it up to $4,000! Never expected anything like this just a year ago.
  14. Just got a 2k increase via the luv button. 4k total line as of right now my current highest limit!
  15. Comenity card $750 > $1050 and Google store card from $1500 > $2500 I called my CU to see about increasing that limit but they want to do a hard pull to do so. Should I do it anyway? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  16. I'm building my credit from scratch and really the only mistake I can think of is getting a SCT card. Though I actually get use of it so it's not a really bad one. I joined NFCU right before they shut down that method of entry. Now though I don't really need a card of theirs so I just have one more bank account to deal with for now unless something changes.

  17. I hope so! Though I am not too sure since around the same time I got approved for a Discover It Miles card so I am putting like 99.99% of my spend through it to rack up the miles to get that year end match next year.
  18. Congrats on nabbing that 2% cb card! I got approved for the same card last month for $3000 hopefully it will grow. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  19. How long after getting a card from discover can I request a CLI? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  20. 2k discover it miles just got it recently. Hope it'll grow nice and steady Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  21. I've had my KingSize card for like 4 statements now at $750. I don't put crazy spend through it but I have used it every month since getting it. Would now be a good time to hit the luv button?
  22. Recently I have been approved for a Discover It Miles card for $2000 and Paypal 2% cashback card for $3000. I am so pleasantly surprised with these results and probably never would have achieved this so soon if it wasn't for forums like this place.
  23. A new higher capacity wallet to fit my now expanded selection of cards. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  24. Over the past week or so I've been approved for PayPal 2 percent cash back card and discover it miles for $3000 and $2000 respectively. At the time my 3 FICO scores were 703-706 and AAOA at 5 months. I am officially done apping for a good year and a half at least as there really are no other cards I need right now. Can't wait to watch these lines grow. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  25. As someone who works at a call center I get at least 10 calls a day where after my greeting the customer will say "Oh thank god someone from the US", I have a friend that works there who is from the Philippines she does have an accent but she speaks English fluently and very easy to understand. Still she gets such abuse from customers just because of her accent though and has every now and again been brought to tears by them. Then I get those that will say "Finally someone that doesn't sound so ghetto" stuff like that right there dries up any goodwill I have with that person on the phone.
