Re: Garden Club Meeting - April 2013

Still in the garden but not for much longer. Just picked up my silver spade. Waiting for a few things to report this month, at least hopefully.

-paid my citi card to 0 after it held a balance for well around two years. That final payment hit just before I converted it to the Hilton reserve. Should report soon.
-closed my Victoria's Secret card in the last few days. Had it 2 years and didn't use it once. Waiting for that to report this month.
-my boa card is next on my list to close and replace by August. It's had a balance for a couple years as well but should be paid off in the coming months. My only card with a balance other than my PRG - has me at 16% util. 4 inquiries should fall of equifax the end of July so ill app for the card I want to replace it with then.
-closed my zync in the last few days as well. Replaced it with the prg earlier this year. Closed account should report soon.

Come a long way since deciding to take better care of my credit in November. Will update when i app for next card. Thanks to all for sharing your experiences and knowledge!

Hello everyone! I'm new to the Garden. I'll be here for at least 6 months. Trying to boost my score.
I went on an app spree a few weeks back after I bought a new car, so after being denied
For AMEX, I have decided to take a chill pill! Encouragement is encouraged!!!! Thanks....

Only 4 points. My new backdated AMEX still hasn't reported, even though I've already been through 1 billing cycle and let a balance report (accidentally, but only about $450), and PIF.
