Kudos to your money-savvy son!

Is your son a member of the myFICO forum? Did he do this on his own or with dad's help?

Oh wow, that is impressive.  

 

Tho I am sure that his USAA cards are pretty much useless and just sit in a SD.  Since he only has an annual income of less than 15k and USAA cards have horrible rewards with their tiered spending levels.
