Have been cleaning up my CR with lots of help from you folks on MyFico (Thanks, everyone! )
July 2012, got secured Cap1 (paid in $159 and got $359 CL).
Today, I just ap'd for Walmart online, and got $400 store card. (MyFico TU649, EQ 642 current scores)
I know this doesn't sound like a big deal, but IT FELT SO GOOD!!!
Want to try for cc with my local CU, but will wait for these to report for a few months.
HuntingMama: Dec 2012 = EQ scorewatch 649, TU myfico 649
HuntingPapa: Dec 2012 = EQ scorewatch 625, TU myfico (Nov 2012) 604
