What's a debit card?


That's a little plastic card I carry in my wallet that never runs out of money and doesn't cost me any  interest either.  :smileyvery-happy:

Why are you anticipating a score hit?  If you're carrying balances and it affects your utilization, you may see a hit.  Otherwise, no.

 

I actually got a little bump :smileywink:


 

What cards did u close.

 


GEMB JCPenneys and GEMB were coded as consumer finance accounts.  I closed them both.  Still have GEMB Dillard's, which is coded as a Dept. Store Card - I'll probably close it at some point when I pick up another bank card, but it's just fine for now.

Just puttin' syrup on something, don't make it pancakes.

Re: Closed 3 Store Cards Today

Thanks Hauling!  I am really starting to understand that in this whole credit mess, I have options and  I don't have to deal with crappy banks and their crappy cards.  Really, what can buy in American Eagle without going over my puny $150.00 CL?  A pair of jeans and a sweatshirt would almost max out the card!  LOL

 

I was approved for a Macy's store card in March of 09 with a CL of $100.  Fast forward a little over a year and my CL is over $2000 AND I was approved for the Macy's Visa, around the same time, I was approved for the Victoria's Secret card, even though that limit is $1010.00 (weird number I know), when I opened the account my CL was only $300.00.  These are examples of cards that have worked for ME, not the other way around, so these are definately my keeper store cards.
