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)

Re: Garden Club Meeting - January 2013

In honor of my 100th post :smileyvery-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: EX: 717; EQ 723; TU 732
2014 Current Score: PenFed FICO NextGen 781 (5/14); Discover FICO08 790 (10/14); EX 748 (4/14); EQ 737 (4/14); TU 761 (5/14)
Goal Score: All 775+
Available Credit: $100K+
