I got my BBRZMC today! I called to activate and I had to talk to CSR who, of course, offered me credit reports for about $10/month- I declined.
I'm going to best buy to make a small purchase so it will start reporting! I am so excited I haven't been to Best Buy in a long time!

I had an HSBC credit rebuilder card, and when I tried to reapply, they told me that I had to wait 18 months before I could apply for another card. You may want to call them and see if this is the case for your Orchard card.
Well after mulling over what to do, I decided to go ahead and apply after being pre-approved. I was nervous because of having an Orchard card for a year I didnt want to get the "You are declined because you were recently approved for another HSBC card". But I got APPROVED! Silly low limit of $300 but Im hoping I can combine my Orchard limit with this one and get rid of my Orchard card. I also have 2 Cap. One cards with $1000 limits so Im getting up there.
Thanks to My Fico forums for the great advice! Ive gained almost 200 points in my FICO scores since first checking my scores almost 2 years ago.

congrats, what did you buy anything good.
Hehe yeah I guess. I got "The Omega Man" original Charleston Heston version on blue-ray at a steal (for blu-ray) for $12.99 AND I got from the budget box (regular DVD) Jodie Foster's "Panic Room" a another steal at $4.99. Great movies.
