vmoore0607's review: Callout Comment I applied for this account in December. I was not approved for their traditional line of credit that reports to the CRAs but I was approved for their freshstart program. I paid off my small purchase early. You have a total of six months to pay off the purchase but due to the high rates, I decided it was best to pay off early. I thought that because I did this, it would disqualify me from receiving credit through them. Apparently it did not. I was awarded with the $200 CL as a start off with their credit card. I plan to make another small purchase and pay on it for about three months to show credit worthiness. Things are looking up in such a short amount of time. Since October I've been monitoring my credit and have since raised my scores, provided by truecredit, by 100 points. Well worth the time and wait!! I plan to continue working on it and never getting denials ever again :) I owe a lot to this site for all the info I've learned!! Thanks FG!!!

Remarks This has to feel good! Congrats on graduating (so to speak). Farming credit is a process (game). Sometimes it seems too slow but... Keep up the faith and keep moving forward!
