Congrats! Thanks for sharing now it's time to garden.
Yes.. Congrats on the mortgage as well. Funny thing... I did basically the same thing. I was gardening for about a year positioning for the mortgage. After closing on 11/15 I decided to add another card (turned to three) before the inevitable credit score dip when the new mortgage is reported. Great minds think alike.
see you in the garden
Ok.......I have to provide an update!!!!!
So it appears that when I applied for the Citi Thank You Preferred Card, I must have hit the submit button twice (which probably resulted in two HPs...hopefully not) because in the mail today was my card with a 8k limit, 0% financing for 12 months on balance transfers, and it's a signature Visa (uhmm ....still trying to educate myself on the difference, but hey, still loving it!)
So I am definitely digging a big hole in the garden and gonna hang there for at least 18 months....cuz what else do I need????!?!? Just time for them to mature.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!
