Re: Goal cards for 2013??

At this point I've secured any card I've been after (see sig) (oh, any it did not come easy thats for sure!!!). At this point I'll prune throughout 2013 when it makes sense and will agressively try to mitigate any annual fees. Here is to 2013!!

My goals for 2013 is: Amex, Capital One, and Barclay's NFL Extra Points (Chicago Bears)

 

I tried my luck with Barclay and I just got approved!  $1000 credit limit  (highest ever on my report) and I have a closed First Premier card from 2 years ago and student loans reporting as paying as agreed. So I can scratch that one off the list Smiley Happy


Go Bears!

Re: Goal cards for 2013??

My goal is to stay credit or loan inquiry free this whole year. I don't want to apply for another CC, as I have all of the cards I can manage, and need. In fact, I plan to close two of them, and get down to five cards. I'm debating.

Goal cards for 2013


injustifiiable wrote:

What cards are YOU aiming for next year?


 

1.  App before the end of Jan for an Amex BCP or BCE.

 

2.  Product change from Freedom or app for Chase Sapphire Preferred.  (Hopefully I can PC, my total # of cards is about right.)

 

3.  Upgrade from Cap1 Cash to World Mastercard.  (Exec rep promised this would happen at the next review.)

 

4.  PC Orchard card to another TBD Capital One product.  (Expect this to occur in Q2, AF is already removed forever.)

 

 

 

If all goes as planned, I should have a nice wallet full of prime cards, without any hit to my AAOA.
