Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?

Re: Garden Club Meeting - April 2013

I'm actually extending my time in the garden, and I am going to leave a small balance this time and apply for the Freedom and the BCE on May 10th (instead of the 27th as I had originally planned). The reason being is because I made a rather large purchase (for school) and thought it was just best to apply about a week-week 1/2 later then I was expecting. I also got my TU score on the 31st, only increasing by one point from 723 to 724. My Eq score went up from 717 to 724. That's really it for now.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - April 2013

Lexie- I'm glad to stay...lol! the garden helps me from applying for cards I might have otherwise pulled the trigger for when I know I shouldn't have. Though everytime I see someone getting approved, I'm pretty tempted to apply I must admit, but I must keep myself from doing so..lol.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - April 2013

So, I am taking a tour of the garden. I have spent the last 4 months rebuilding my credit. My current Equifax is 749. EX was 699 from a lender, had a few things deleted, but Im still waiting for one more collection to be removed. Im not certain about TU because I am waiting for that collection to be deleted as well. I dont have anything flashy in my wallet.  App'ing wasnt much of a problem for me until I joined NFCU today.  I have a total of 11 inquiries, 5 from car shopping 09/11, 4 in the last year including the one from joining NFCU today. I blame the constant posts about NFCU. I just keep going back and forth lol.

Tour, pull up a chair, plant a seedling or just spend time with good company and conversation. Welcome
