Re: Advice please!!!!

I'd keep driving that 09 for a year or so till I paid off my CC balances.

Re: Advice please!!!!

That's probably your best bet as doing it now will probably just waste an inquiry.

Re: Advice please!!!!

Yes. That would be the best thing to do. I'm just one of those impatient people. I might try anyway. If I can that's great but if not I will just pay for a year. Thanks again

Re: Advice please!!!!

You're welcome. If you aren't buying a house or looking at a new credit card in the near future, I think trying is okay if you want to do that. Best of luck to you. :-)

Re: Advice please!!!!

Congrats! How much did they approve you for? :-) Must be at least the 30K you were asking for?
