There is no real reason for me wanting to get a primecard by May if I am honest with myself. I am not planning on really using the cards I get, just trying to improve my score. I thought if I got a prime I would get a higher CL,which would help my score grow faster. Also, thought the airmiles I would get would be nice when I buy my airplane tickets.OMG, I just had a thought. I will need to take out a BARLoan in April or May of next year for about $8,000 to pay for the bar and bar classes.How are loans looked at? Frigging eh,I forgot about this.You guys have convinced me not to apply for any more credit for at least a year,except for my barloan.If I am honest with myself I really really want to buy a house. Because I have all these inquiries I need to wait until July/August 2010 for the inquiries to drop off. I guess I need to focus on that dream instead of the short term gratification of getting approved for a credit card.

hauling,Does de-duped only apply to the same issuer or the same store? For example, I applied for 3 cards issued by GEMB. Does this mean this will count as 1 inquiry or 3?
