Re: Garden Club Meeting - May 2013

Stepped out ever so briefly last month for a car upgrade! In the garden for the foreseeable future, probably until it's time to move into a new apartment!

 

Debts are going down as well, so happy I decided to control my spending and get that debt down! Freedom and Discover should be paid off by mid May, then it will be time to hammer at the big boys.

In full gardening/ debt annihilation mode! (4/15/13)
Notre Dame FCU Visa 0/2k (8/04); CapOne Best Buy 800/1.5k (7\06)
Citi Thank You World MC 4800/9.7k (1/11); Amex Zync NPSL (9/11)
Chase Freedom Visa 1600/3.8k (9/11); Chase Southwest RR Premier Visa Signature 4300/10.7k (6/12); Discover It 0/3k (7/12)
EQ: 751 (4/1/13) EX: 742 (4/8/13) TU: 732 (4/8/13)

[ Edited ]

Well, I fnally took my chance this morning, was breathing pretty nervously and put in All my app info (I also have a student checking account and savings account with Chase if that helps any bit.) and then submit, 30 seconds later, I got an instant approval message! I'm so happy right now, I can't say. I thought I was getting denied again. I'm sure it will be a low limit, but that is fine with me. Now it's Amex next, and then back to the garden I go. I can't get a picture to post here, so if someone can help me that would be great. This is the only one I got....http://i494.photobucket.com/albums/rr308/redsoxfan_photos/ChaseApproval.jpg

Re: Garden Club Meeting - May 2013

I will have been in the garden for almost a year at the end of this month!  (Unless you count that Verizon Inquiry to switch my cell phone provider).

 

Soon it will be time to see if that Capital One card fixed enough nitrogen for me for new seedings. (bad gardening joke)

Re: Garden Club Meeting - May 2013

It has been 3 months since my last app! I'm planning on waiting until Jan 2014 for my next app, AmEx BCP. I've been pushing back the date for the AmEx constantly, but I just want to make sure my reports are the best they can be at the time of the app! 


Starting Score (07/2011): EQ 706 TU 709
Current Score (6/2013): EQ 740 TU 732 EX 740
Goal Score: 750+ on all 3
