GTE FCU-Approved!

GTE Federal Credit Union finally finished processing my application today and mailed my card out. It was for their U22 credit card for young adults ages 17-22. One of my New Year resolutions is to stop applying for new credit. I was just trying to get all I could in before February 22nd when the new credit card rules go into effect. I just turned 19 in December so I am pretty stoked to have several cards.

 

 

I have the following cards now:

 

Suncoast Schools FCU student rewards Visa: CL $500

Kay Jeweler's: CL $400

Jared Jeweler's: CL $400

Citi Platinum Select Visa for college students: CL $500

Badcock & More: CL $2,000

Target Store card: CL $200

Macy's Store card: CL $600

GTE FCU U22 Mastercard: CL $500

Congratulations Keith...sounds as if you know what to do now. Be patient, and let it all age. You will then start to see the benefits.

Re: GTE FCU-Approved!

Thanks; Gibran, Lynette, and Ryan! I'm hoping to my FICO scores in the 700's by the end of January or the beginning of February when I should be able to retrieve them (I can't at the moment). I doubt that will be with all of the new accounts and all, but I can hope, right? Lol

If you have a job and can prove an income the new rules may not have that much of an effect on you.
