Fell off the wagon, but good results

Well at least I was not drapping. Last week apped for Homed Depot and Lowes. Each approved with a $500 CL. I called back to CSR and got both increased to $1800! Also apped Tractor Supply (citi) and got a $4000 CL right off the bat! So now I have Walmart, Amazon, Barclays, Cabelas, Credit One, Lowes, Home Depot and Tractor Supply in my little garden! Already used Credit one (PIF) Amazon (PIF) Cabelas (New Shotgun, PIF) Walmart (PIF) Spent about $1500 and PIF all of them as of yesterday. Have no idea what I need at Tractor Supply but I'll put that one in the rotation soon. Maybe a new feeder for the Gophers in my backyard.

Re: Fell off the wagon, but good results

I used my Walmart card to buy a nice 14gun fireproof safe. We take gun safety very seriously at my house. My girls and my liberal wife have been trained to check each of my guns to see if they are safe to handle or not.
