From rebuilding credit to PayPal MC with 3k limit!

Finding the myFICO forums has been a blessing!!!! I have made many mistakes in my life but disregarding some of my credit obligations by far has to be one of the worst things I have done.


After bouncing between the forums and seeing all of the approvals for credit in here, I got the app itch :smileyembarrassed:. So I gave in and applied for several credit cards and was approved for 3 out of the 4 apps.


I did not think this was possible a few years back but it feels GREAT to hear, APPROVED instead of DENIED. Had to share!!


I'm heading to the garden ASAP!!!

Out of the garden.
