Hey i am a long time member of CB but i've been gone for quite some time. I am in the middle of helping my fiance build his credit as he has been working out of the country for close to fifteen years and while he was gone a family member used him as a cosigner for several loans without his permission. We have gotten these loans removed from all but TU. His FICOs are as follows: TU 590, EX 690, EQ790. This week he applied and was approved for a choice of three cards with Discover, he chose the cash back card with a CL of $2250 and today he was approved for a Lowes CL $1000. Both made him call in after applying and send in ID to prove who he is. My question is about a Recon for the Discover. He asked Lowes to increase the CL while on the phone, they told him to activate the card when it comes and call back. Should he wait to recon Discover or ask once he activates. Also, do you recommend stopping there for awhile before apping anywhere else? He has four rental properties and a commercial business and wants to build his credit to have it available when needed. any suggestions would be well appreciated.
