There are some members on here with 25 - 30 credit cards, haha. I'm at 19 cards right now with the new approvals. If either the pending recon's go through I'll be apart of the 20 CC club, :smileylol:. Not for long though. I'm going to close the smaller ones soon. Lol.

Very nice spree and congrats. Looking at your credit history and profile, I felt like I was looking at myself. I have a lot of similarities with you.

24 years old
Good mix of cards
Similar scores

And this board made me see A LOT of opportunities for improvement. Most recently I went on a spree and attained a AMEX BCP, BofA Better Balance Rewards and Discover It. A couple of months ago I got a Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Sapphire (accidentally app'd for the regular Sapphire) but will PC it to a Freedom.

Thanks a lot man! I agree with you, this board made me realize everything I was doing wrong & that there was so much room for improvement. You got a nice set of cards as well. It's going to be nice as we get older & these prime cards are like 5+ years of age already when we are in our early 30's, :smileyvery-happy:

20 cards just seems like too much work haha, I'm not looking forward to having 5 bills to worry about paying, but its really not hard to just put a reminder in my phone calendar for each, I like to pif a couple days before the end of the statement on all my cards.
