Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

In the garden for about two weeks . Plan to stay until early next year most my baddies will be off and i will be able to get my first home . Glad these gardening post get updated pretty often . Sometimes seeing everyone getting all these new cards tempts me eventhough I know I can't get them . Glad there is some support for those of us who just need to wait and age our credit history.

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

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.


Hello, and welcome to the Garden Club!

 

No, you don't have to start at seedling status; just count from when your last apped for credit, and congrats on that nice platinum spade!

Well congrats to everyone joining/ staying in the garden. 

 

i am officially 6 months of no inquries, and  getting my silver spade on the 5th, unlike last time though im in it for at least a platinum spade! (9 more months to go) and all my inquries will be over a year and a half. 

 

discover has been sending pre approvals for the it, but im holding out for another amex, and a cli on my freedom. 

 

happy gardening too all, and good luck this month. 


 

If you haven't apped for six months, then you should already be at gold spade status. Smiley Happy

lol, my fault. I suppose I should be more cautious. I guess I don't consider gender when I say bro. I don't know if it's because I was born and raised in Southern California, or what. What is a cool sounding, one syllable word that Identifies a female? Because sis just won't cut it. I do apologize for the masculine insinuation though.

Still here and coming up on two months. Oddly enough my Penfed card still hasn't reported... Once it does I may purchase a report on here to get an updated fico score. March 9th is the day I can ask for a cli with AMEX. I can't wait to see if I get the full 3x increase. Other then that I'm here to stay until at least August and more likely February.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

Still here and as of today I'm silver!! LOL.  Saw my scores drop a little since I used my cards on my Thailand trip but I've already seen them bounce most of the way back, I PIF'd as soon as I got back so now to garden until new truck time in late summer.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

Apped for a few cards in Feb, but I'm in the garden for a while now - at least 9 months, maybe longer, depending on how long it takes to get a sufficient down payment for a mortgage!

Recent FICO scores: TU - 755 (mortgage lender pull)
