Long time lurker, first time poster.
I have had a secured Citi card under my mother's name for about a year. I kept my usage to under 30% and never carried a balance. I applied for a DiscoverIT card for students last month and was approved with a credit line of $500 with a TU 747. I decided to go ahead and take a chance with a big one!
I applied for the new Amex Everyday and was approved!! with a credit line of $3k
This will be my last card for the year. Ahhh Im so excited to finally have a nice card!! Planning to spend no more than %20 of my credit line
