App Addiction (AA Meeting)

Hello, my name is Bobby and I am an addict.

 

Ok so I was suppose to be in the GARDEN as of 2/20/13 but I gave into my temptations with NFCU.

 

I had already had the Cash Rewards card but I wanted the Flagship so bad I could already feel it in my wallet.

So, today I committed the garden "SIN" and applied.....

 

Result: Approved!!!!!

 

Ok I feel much better getting that off of my chest, now I can hardly contain myself waiting for the arrival of my new card.

This time I really am going to the garden....

 

GOAL: 1 year!!!!

Thanks... :smileyhappy: 

I really do think I have a problem and need a support group to kick this habit. It is worse than drugs I think!!!

Re: App Addiction (AA Meeting)

Those of us on here are at least a little more credit obsessed than the average consumer. It doesn't help the trigger finger to see everyone else getting approved day in and day out. What keeps me from apping when I get the urge is to reflect on how far I've come in my credit journey. My scores have steadily risen, I have the prime cards I want, and those cards have much higher limits than when I started out. As trite as it may sound I like to remind myself that building good credit is a marathon not a race.

I have SEVERE app addiction, even though I know 99% that I am going to be declined, I must apply lol just in case I get that 1% approval.

You are correct....I think that with what I have I can sit back for a little while. The only other card that I REALLY want is the CSP and I just got denied for that one a couple of weeks ago. I am going to let the ones I have age a bit more and next year try for the CSP again.
