@ 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



That's more like sis! :smileywink:


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.


Don't worry a bit, I'm not offended. I've worked in the computer field for many, many years, which traditionally has been male dominated. I've always felt quite comfortable being "one of the guys." :smileyhappy:

Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

I pulled my EQ and TU scores from here today, expecting to see a ding on TU for the recent inqs. To my surprise, there was no ding. As a matter of fact, both of my scores remain unchanged from last month. It will be interesting to see what happens when the Freedom reports, but for now, I'm happy. :smileyhappy:

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.


My Penfed was approved on 2/6, activated on 2/17 and didn't report to credit bureus until yesterday (2/28).

I hear you. I know that my Delta gold statement has already cut, but no report yet. I am kind of "on-edge", but your one month rebound story gives me hope. I expect that the Freedom will report for the first time around the 8th, and then the BCE will report around the 15th for the first time.

Re: Garden Club Meeting - March 2013

Hello everyone! February was really hard but I managed to keep my head down. This month marks my 6th month since my app spree last fall.  It also marks a year since I purchased a car - so those dealership inqs are aging nicely.  One CA fell off -Experian is fast! And the temptation is strong to app for a travel/hotel card. :smileysad:

 

The weather is beautiful in So Cal so I'm going to pick up my spade and tend my accounts-

I'm still here! I got a pre-screened AMEX Gold Card in the mail yet again last night, already dropped it in the locked shred bin at work.

Looking forward to collecting my silver space on March 28th!

 


To further outline my goals so you guys can help keep me honest: :smileyhappy:

  • SILVER SPADE at 6 months: on June 28th.
  • No apps until at least October (changed my signature line from July).

Hopefully by October, I'm in a position to app for a Chase or AMEX prime card! Then I'll be sitting in the garden for another year until starting the mortgage process in October 2014.


Starting Score: Jan 2012: EQ - 624
