People who are "slaves to their FICO scores" might run the risk of being boring at cocktail parties, but they certainly don't get tempted by major app sprees. FICO scores reward conservative, rational behavior with no appreciable debt, so if everyone became a slave to their FICO scores, this country's credit picture would be in a lot better shape.
the problem here is she is becoming a slave to fico score as many people before her have done.
with no ability to get into further trouble with debt she will be able to get what she needs in life much faster. A debt free life, home, "car" are needed

You can be debt free and have credit. Not too many people pay for a car or home with cash.

Wow! Hauling, were you talking to me or Bella1980? lol....The advise you gave was just what I needed to read. My situation is different than the OP though.
Within the past month, I went app crazy and got denied for all but Orchard. Its a crappy card I guess but being I had no revolving credit, its perfect for me for now.
I have questions about the cc but I need to go to that forum to post.
Thanks for the advice / info.
