You forgot to mention that you bought a Mega Millions ticket that won and you left it in the glove box and never checked it. Big congrats

Hey, I really do have 2 scratchers in my purse that I haven't checked yet. I am checking them as soon as I get off work! I'll post the results.

Congrats. I have been in the garden for 3 months now I have not apped since I got my Barclays Reward card.
I have called for increases, none did a hard pull. I got my Walmart card doubled from $500 and my Belks card from $200 to $800. I find the Belks increases funny as I have never actually used the card. Household said no not until 6 months from the last increase. Marathon Visa said no that I have to wait until 6 months. I did not ask on my Bealls or Marathon gas card, but I might ask on the gas card soon. They are however good anyway at giving increases every few months.
There are really only two cards that I want in the future anyway; Target and a good rewards card with a low interest rate. I don't care from who, although I think I would like an Amex, Discover, PNC, or Chase card. (PNC is who I bank with and I guess it would be handy to have overdraft just in case.)
I will however just sit in this garden for a while and keep asking Capone for a CLI, just for the humor of asking for it. I doubt I will ever get it, it is Capital One and the limit has been $500 for two years. Although I did file with the Better Business Bureau just to see what would happen. Funny thing is that I got a call the same day from the 'Office of the President' to tell me they have received my complaint. They did not review or even look at anything except my phone number before they called. You could tell from all the noise in the background that the office of the president at Capone is simply just another call center. Imagine that! They have three 'offices of the president.' How can you have 3 of the same offices and expect people to take you seriously?
Congrats on your spree. You did better than I did on my last spree. I do have a lot of inquiries though and your scores are higher than mine. My FICO is 689 from Walmart. Which is free and a good reason to have the card.
