Re: Garden Club Meeting - July 2014

Hey guys, 8 more days until I can be bronze! Would've been today but I got my barclays last month. So far it's satisfied my itch... Hope all is well with you all :smileyhappy:

Hello, all! I say this many times, but MAYBE, just MAYBE i can keep up with the forum now that school's over :smileytongue:

 

And hello to all the new members! You may not be so new anymore, but it's been a while since I've been in the gardening thread because it explodes quickly :smileyhappy: so you're new to me!

 

Got a new car on June 14th, and with it of course an auto loan (my first one!). After a round of auto inquiries, I'm throwing in the towel and going to attempt a 2-year gardening expedition :smileyhappy: the only thing I can see myself coming out for is a refi to DCU from PNC (2.44%), if DCU still has a low rate in the future and I feel I can't pay down my loan as fast as I want to, for the sake of saving interest. Therefore, I'm putting a tentative date of June 14th, 2016 until I apply for any more cards. Mortgage isn't in my immediate future either, so so far, so good.

 

Discover's 3-month CLI request is coming up on July 20th. However, as I was catching up with the forums, I saw someone make mention that requesting at 3 months may inhibit any auto CLIs? Is this so?

 

Also considering doing some weeding, such as that Shell and TD card. We'll see what happens. I'm taking the Shell away from my parents when the cards are re-issued for August, because their finances are getting a little funky with my grandma in a rehab, and the fact they owe me $1400 already...well, that's another story, and I'm setting them up on a repayment plan, because with a car payment and insurance payment, I'd like it back so I have cushion!

 

Happy gardening, y'all!

Re: Garden Club Meeting - July 2014

Just joined the club a few days ago.  Going to try for at least six months, and see from there.  Working on bringing my utilization (currently around 64%) way down, paying some stuff off, and eventually ditching the sub-prime cards.  Sockdrawering some stuff for now, but I got all the way rid of First Premier a few days ago, and it felt great!



Gardening since 6/28/14. Goal is 12/28/14 or later.

Happy July 1st GCers!

 

No changes to my credit profile. It has been 6mos since my last mini spree -  maybe I'll pick up a few points. 

 

Wishing you all the best as you pursue your goals.
