I stumbled on this website earlier this year and began in the rebuilding section with around 500ish. Once I built my scores using the advice from the rebuilders I headed to the Mortgage section and soaked up all the knowledge in that forum. I closed on my first home on 11/30. Now I am hanging out in the Credit Forum and loving the advice you guys have. So I went on my first app spree. I needed some appliances and furniture for my new house plus I wanted a couple new cards
Here's how it went:
Boa123 VISA CLI to $8500
Citi Forward $6500
Home Depot $5500
Rooms to Go $5200
Discover More $1500
Chase ? had to fax in Driver's License still waiting on decision
I got no love from GE as I was declined for Lowes and WM.
So now I am off to the garden for next 6 months to a year.
I just wanted to say that this website is awesome. I can't remember how I found this site, but when I did I read every single post that I could to help me in my journey to turn around my credit. I am so grateful to all of you guys for the information that you post.
