Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2013

Checking in... so the other day I unfroze my TU to apply for the Fidelity Amex (made a decision I want my rewards dollars to invest and hopefully grow to support retirement). Anyhow, that card was approved by moving some of my BOA Better Balance rewards CL (done automatically by FIA). I was a bit annoyed with BOA as they couldn't really explain why my CL was reduced on my Better Balance card (I already knew why) and submitted a CLI... of which was approved (with another HP on TU).

 

Saturday I signed into my closed Walmart card to see my TU account (still had access to the free FICO) and long story short I entered the wrong password in too many times resetting my account. The only way to log in and reset was to present the card number (of which I no longer had). Since I really value the TU Fico, I reapplied and was approved for the Walmart Discover. 

 

Fast foward to this lovely Sunday evening and I was catching up on another blog RE the Barclays US Airways card bonuses. I already have one, and got recent increases on my Barclays cards so I applied (assuming a denial) and was approved for a decent line.

 

4 TU pulls in one week... I need to sit it out in the garden for at least 6 months... work has been slow recently so I blame that for all this free time to think about CCs ;-) Time to freeze this report and CHILL!

FICO: EX: 756 (8/14); TU: 758 (9/14); EQ 732 (8/14)

In My Wallet: Amex X 5 | Barclays X 3 | BOA X 1 | CapOne X 3 | Chase X 2 | Citi X 6 | DCU X 1 | Discover X 1 | Fidelity X 1 | Fifth Third X 1 | PenFed X 1 | PSECU X 1 | Sams Club MC X 1 | Target RedCard X 1 | USAA X 2 | US Bank X 1 | Walmart X 1 | Wells Fargo X 1 = 33 Cards

Holding off apps until the end of the year! Wish me luck!

You are correct, BB.  On entering the garden everyone starts as a seedling, then after one month bronze spade.  You can see all levels on first page of thread.

Feel better and best wishes
