Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

Greetings, fellow gardeners.

 

I hope to earn my broze spade at mid-month. Last month I apped for and got a Walmart Discover and an Amex BCE. I also knocked my utilization down from 32% to 14% and now to 8%. My scores went from low-mid 700s to high-mid 700s. Now to sit in that lawn chair in the garden and watch those AAoAs grow.

 

Hoping to stay in the garden until at least August, or better yet next February. Only 11-1/2 months to go!

Aww man, I thought they allowed it, or at least I heard they allowed it. Can you apply for any card and then PC it to the BCE other then the Delta? for charge cards, I know if you wanted to  downgrade or upgrade between charge cards they let you. But good to know, thank you!


You can PC through the same card grouping, according to the CSR; e.g. get a card in the blue group (blue, blue cash, BCE, or BCP) and you can PC to any other blue card...etc.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

I'm back, rising like a phoenix from the ashes after I got locked out of my old account. (Bye bye, IS2, and hello IS3....still me, despite my password problems!)

I am newly Golden as of February. Still gardening my little patio garden of two secured cards, BUT one of them is an Orchard card that is unsecuring. So this is my first unsecured card in close to 12 years. Score is moving in the right direction, although not as fast as I'd like but meh, what can you do. Rebuilding is going well too. A big tax return helped me with some PFD's, so I'm feeling pretty good.

It's not a fast process, but I'm up close to 150 points since June 2012 when I started. I'm ready for Spring, and can't wait to see how things will bloom.

@ Tinuviel,

 

Welcome back to seedling status. It's not like I was in the garden... But the card that put me here was the freedom. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the sweet smell of freedom bro!

[ Edited ]

I'm officially in the garden after being unofficially in for 49 months (can you count the time you weren't a member of myFico? Smiley Happy )  Then I went on the app spree of my life and after successfully getting five new cards, 1 CLI on a new card and 2 CLIs on old cards, I am done for the time being.  I'll stick around for six months (Labor Day) when it will be time for some CLIs. Smiley Happy 

 

Discover, US Bank and Amex BCP, you'll be on notice then!

 

Actually, I can do the BCP in just 61 days.  Well, I guess my time in the garden for Spring will be short!

Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

Hi I'm new. I haven't had an app since 10/2011. Do I have to start at seedling or can I go to whatever level corresponds to that time? Thanks.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

Mark me as in attendance and hello my fellow gardenersSmiley Happy

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?

Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

I'd say go for the gold. Just because you didn't know you were in the garden does not mean that you weren't in the garden. I am no authority by any means, and this is my first time in the garden, so take my advice FWIW -- not much in this instance...lol.
