I applied for a Hooters MC today online and got the "will notify you in 7-10 days" response and wonder what my chances really are of getting the card. My fico scores are: TU= 630, EQ= 619, EX= 600; anyone think this might be a wasted inquiry?:scared:

Happylady, did you try calling the backdoor number and asking for an increase? I'm pretty sure they will grant you one.

The second card that they started me off with had an initial CL of $500. I called in after 3 months saying I didn't get an increase after my 3rd billing statement cycle as it said in the credit steps letter so they increased my CL to $1,000. A few days later, they automatically increased my limit to $1,500 and I have been stuck there ever since. It's a good card though and it doesn't hurt if you try, I call them once a month to see if they have any CLI's for me.


Yeah I called the back door number for Cap1 and asked for a CLI but got denied :worried: :worried:
Wow...you call once a month...I should try that...especially if it doesn't hurt my score or anything...thanks hjm331 for the tip!! :laugh: Maybe if I call enough they will say please give this girl at least 1 CLI so she can stop calling us!! :laugh:

Happylady, try applying for a Capital One card. If they deny you too, then stop.


Actually I have a Cap1 card that I got in Jan 08 - I started with $300 limit and then they increased to $500 with "Credit Steps". I'm gonna keep paying on time and try again for more cards in a few months. Thanks for the support! :laugh:

Replied by happylady on topic How many inq do you

How many inq do you have from all three each?


I had 10 inq each from EX, EQ and TU. I found out that Hooters pulled TU which according to what I pulled myself from the BofA service my TU score is 573...so I dont' know :worried:
But that's cool - at least I have 2 cards and I am on the right track now and on this board now so that's what's important!! :laugh:
I'll just keep on keepin' on with my payments and play the waiting game! :cheesing:
Everyone on this site is so great! This is a great place to get support while trying to get your credit together! :fun:

Hooters denied you? Or did you try the Barclays cards?


Yes, Hooter's gave me a big "NO" :worried:
I haven't tried Barclays - I actually never heard of them before seeing it on this forum...but if Hooter's denied me I'm kinda thinking I should just chill for awhile with the 2 cards I have and just build my history with them...maybe after some of my inquiries drop off I'll try again. :worried: What do you think??
