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, Smiley LOL. 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, Smiley Very Happy

Re: Successful App Spree (7 approvals / 2 pending)

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.
