Hi All, I don't post much but I've been a constant visitor for a while.
I applied for the Arrival and was approved for 5k, a little lower than I had hoped so when I call to activate I plan on trying to get an increase WITHOUT a HP.
I see that a few people have had luck with this and a few haven't. I also couldn't resist the arrival because of the 400 but I've been contemplating the Amex everyday though I already have the BCE and with what everyone says about Barclays and how they monitor new accounts I wouldn't want to take any chances.
Also in addition to the cards listed in my signature I have a department store credit card with a 350 limit. I haven't used it in over 3 years but it's my current oldest account. I also have some student loans and a personal loan and at last check in March my score was 772. Just curious if anyone had any thoughts on closing the dept store card and the WF card since I never use them.
I don't think at this point either would hurt me and they've been socked forever so it's not a pressing matter just would prefer to my have them sitting around since I have no plans to use them again.
Amex BCE - 6600. Marriott Premier - 12k. Freedom - 2600.
Discover IT - 5500. WF College Card - 1200.
