So my question is, am I still "in the garden" if I am vicariously apping thru my son Smiley Wink  


I just vicariously app'd for Blispay through my dad. He got the verification message then recieved an approval email yesterday. I think it still counts as "In the Garden." However, he also added me as an AU to his Chase Amazon rewards card. Can I still be in the garden if an AU account iss added?

In the Garden until 4/11/2018

Just completed a successful five card spree. Now I'm happily off to garden for 6-12 months!

Sadly, I lost my Platinum Spade yesterday after 14 months of gardening. But I traded it for the Hilton Honors Surpass Card from Amex. I needed it since I am beginning a new position requiring quite a bit of overnight travel.

 

I am happy to finally be at a point after 5 years of rebuilding where I can get accepted for whatever I need yet have enough will power to not apply for just anything.

Checking myself back in as long as it's still only a soft pull Smiley Wink

 

Life has been quite busy but now I am back with a new job, a new engine for the car, and better health.

 

Hope everybody here is doing well and gardening strong!

Re: Garden Club - April 2017

Official check in for month 2.  Got a nice little bump back on my scores after my apping (8-15 pts-new ones in sig).  I think some of this was due to a BT I did to bring one TL under 22% that was over 40% (0% on new couch).   Also got Amex CLI of $10.2K (now 30k) and a Disco CLI of $3.2k (now 22.2k). Have so far managed to not click on my Chase CSP offer - I have a high CL with them now so thinking the SL wouldnt be worth the hit point - but there at 50k points just waiting for me..... LOL

Hmmm, that's a tough one, but I think it does count against you due to:

So it's a slip, a rule that wasn't completely understood. Just reset your date and keep going.
