Yeah thankfully compared to last year. LOL, haha I hear you. It's been a while though and sometimes I feel rather lonely, especially when I have friends that are couples...that's when it hits (the loneliness part.) lol, but you never know, I may find the right lady for me one day.
Right? I didn't Amex would approve my SPG because of my income (15k, and inquiries @6, but they were almost six months old already). But they did. I reconned twice, and both times they said everything was good (I have 10 INQ's on EX, AAOA was fine, Util was okay at 11% on one card and overall 2%). Just income was too low. I asked if they had a platinum version as I had seen people on other forums get approved for it with lower limits but he told me that the Marriott Premier starts at 5k typically and he asked if there was anything else he could do? I was going to ask for a CLI (but I declined since I don't need another HP. I don't need to app until Christmas of next year anyway so I'm good.) It could have been a Max exposure thing as well based on my current income and history as they have me at 6k with them total. In the future though, I think I'll be able to get more as my income rises.
Ahh, that's good. Are you planning to stay in Wisconsin or move somewhere? I hear you, just go out and do it, but beware as you know that a home is (for a lack of a better term...a money pit...lol.) But I'm glad you are thinking about it and I hope you'll enjoy it.
I'm not either. They are pull happy though and for some reason everyone likes to pull EX here. I too have a banking relationship with them and they can obviously see the amounts I've run on my cards...and they would grant me a CLI. No dice. Yeah I'm not fond of their CS, but as I am Indian/Pakistani, I can talk to them in our language and they generally understand. Chase recon is good and I used them once when I applied almost a couple years ago (got denied, but they were understanding..but had to stick to their policy, for which I can't blame them.) Amex too.
I hope so too. I was talking to a recruiter at my job fair at school. She told me 5,000 had applied and by the end of the journey there are typically 4-500 that graduate and make it out on to the road...so It's going to be a challenge but I'm confident I can make it...I just hate interviews though..they kinda scare me. But I like their benefits and what they do as an organization so that's why. I could always try for the Sheriff's Department...but I' don't like that type of work (I'd rather be driving all day as opposed to be dealing with dog barking and other stuff lol.) Yup, It's really tough but I think I'll be able to do it. If I don't at least there will be no regrets that I didn't try.
