Re: Garden Club Meeting - January 2013

I'm still hiding out in my garden. I was happy to see the NavCheck $10K "bloom" alongside my CashRewards and checking accounts. I've also SDed a couple of cards but am seriously thinking about EOing Cap1 for kicks.  I'm still at $750/AF, so if that goes nowhere, will likely close it.  I just bought the materials to build a fence for my real-life garden, so watching my util creep up with this 0% financing stuff is painful but certainly helps curb that app itch.

Starting Score: 10/1/2011 EQ 568 TU 593
Current Score: EQ 664 TU 700 EX 701 (FAKO)

Zero percent financing is where the devil lives...

Re: Garden Club Meeting - January 2013

In honor of my 100th post Smiley Very Happy, I am officially getting back into the garden. I didn't go on crazy "app spree's" but, applying for two cards at a time feels like one to me. I applied for several cards last July, another in November, and two more this month. Now I'm ready to tend these, increase my AAoA, and watch my credit score increase as well. It will be interesting to see what my credit score is after these most recent inquiries. Luckily I was approved for both cards I took HP's for, so none were "wasted". I remember the good feeling of having been in the garden for a while and watching as my score began increasing month to month. I'm ready for that again now.


Starting Score (2015): EX: 748; EQ 737; TU 761
2014 Current Score: Discover FICO08 803 (1/15); EQ BE FICO 817 (1/15); PenFed FICO NextGen 799 (12/14)
Goal Score: All 775+ Available Credit: $100K+ Utilization: 10%
Gardening Since: Sept 2014

Re: Garden Club Meeting - January 2013

I definitely want and need to join the garden club because once I start applying and get approved it's like I can't stop. I just applied earlier this morning, but I'm done now and I hope to remain done for at 6 months hopefully a year though. I know I will be calling on you all for help often!!
