Re: App Spree Levels

I would agree that 3 apps at the same time would be considered a full spree.  My maximum app limit is 3 with good results.  Never have any recent (less than 6 months) inquiries on the CRA i have chosen.  Also do my research on what bureau is pulled for the creditor i have chosen.  Never more than 1 app per bureau.  I have never been denied using this method however YMMV!

Re: App Spree Levels

Wife didn't keep them long enough to break them in.  Then there's the son's. and mine.  No new ones for awhile now.   Thinking of buying the wife a new car for Christmas, but I'm so close to having everything except for one mortgage paid off.  I really like that idea!

That would be nice Christmas gift! She'll be really happy about that!!

 

I'm still working up the courage to make that big leap and buy my own car. Don't know if I should go New or Used. Guess that's another topic tho.

Re: App Spree Levels

I've actually been thinking about leasing.  I've never leased before.  But I found a vehicle that interested me so I'm considering it.  But like I said, since cleaning up my credit, I'm afraid to use it.   Kind of like washing the car and leaving it in the garage to keep it from getting dirty.

Re: App Spree Levels

True. I have to get my scores back up to the mid 700s before I apply for a loan tho. I want to go with either Chase bank or a Credit union.

 

If there's a good deal with the lease and you don't see yourself sticking with the car you're looking at for the long haul, that would be a good choice. Lease allows you to get the required car maintenance and when it's over, you don't have to keep it. Or if you want to keep it...lease buy out!
