I briefly lurked during last night's social.  It looked like fun!


I lurked for a long time before joining as well Lol 

Its a great time to unwind from the week and also meet everyone.

We tend to let loose if you know what i mean but in a good way.

It also gets us away from all the approval threads to remind us why we are gardening and to stick with the plan we set for ourselves with others who also have a planSmiley Wink

Before you app think...
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?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

I was a baaaad boy.  I got a preapproval offer from FNBO Amex, so I went for it.  Since I was already out of the garden I went for the Delta Sky Miles card too.  Oh well, but yeah got them both.  I can't even imagine what other card I could want at this point, so I guess there is no point in making any plans.  Might just sit here and garden again.  Just hang out here and tend to the good things and get rid of the brown ones.  I already axed the Merrick secured card, since they don't have a plan for it to go unsecure and they don't wave the annual fee.  Oh well almost 6 years old, so some sadness there.  But hey, it doesn't matter now that I have a complete portfolio.


Congrats on your new TLs, and good job nixing the useless Merrick.  Now that your portfolio is complete, you can really let your seedlings grow and bloom.

Ooh - do I get to be the first to post on the June GC? Smiley LOL

 

What a great way to end the May GC with a rowdy Friday night social. I'm sure the June GC will even be more lively! I definitely want to stay in the garden for another couple of months at least. Yay for June!


Yes, last night was a blast, as always.  We can garden together for the next couple of months, as I plan to be here through Sept.


I had a great time and yes we can do it as a team wooo hooo


Teamwork that's what maked it work!  Great support here in the garden.Smiley Very Happy

Hi all! I just discovered this forum about two weeks ago in the middle of my app spree.  I'm all done now and am committing to the garden for at least 6 months.  Today is my first day so I'm hoping I can hang in here until 1/1/14 (at the least).  My goal is to get the Delta Amex and a Macy's store card. I don't want anything else after that.  The Delta Amex is the one I want the most.  ETA: My seedling won't show for some reason. Smiley Sad


Welcom to the garden!  Looks like you did quite nicely on your app spree, so now it's time to let them mature, and, in time, you'll be in great shape to snag that AMEX.  Should you get an itch, be sure to post.  The myFICO Emergency Response Team will be there to make sure you keep your goals in sight.

Hey fellow GC'ers!

June is a wonderful month for seedlings! I'll be celebrating a bday this month and will have cake for everyone!

Just found out that my Amex was backdated to 1985! Yes, I was a baby when I got my first Amex. Lol. I actually had forgotten about my Green charge and when I had asked earlier they told me the corporate gold didn't apply for membership date. For some reason, my DH asked me about why I didn't mention the cc I had when I was 2 lol! I am glad he remembered - took a few minutes out of my vacation to make a call and this morning I got the 2 emails ( one for the date and 1 for the new cc!)

I have no idea why they didn't see it then but glad to have gained 28 years!

Thank you again myFICO and DH!

Awewome!!!  Please let us know how much this bumps your AAoA.
