Glad I didn't close that card

I have a Woman Within CC that I got back in my early rebuilding days last year. Started with a $200 limit. I hadn't used it in awhile, but got a catalog with a few things in it I liked, so dusted it off.  Just looked at my statement and they gave me a $400 CLI with my last purchase.  Not much, but, hey, every little bit counts when it comes to UT!

 

Very glad I listened to the advice here to NOT close things unless they are costing you $$$

Starting Score: 10/1/2011 EQ 568 TU 593
Current Score: EQ 664 TU 700 EX 701 (FAKO)
