Got lost & couldnt find my way to the garden so...

Re: Got lost & couldn't find my way to the garden so...

Thank you for sharing this approval.  Hubby is looking to add another credit card in June,  His current credit card has a limit of 12k, which is his only card, with NFCU.

 

I'm thinking he should do an app spree and maybe pick up NFCU Flagship and maybe a PenFed card?

 

His scores aren't that bad, but he did have a CO with Citi in 2010  which was paid in 2012.


Starting Score: 08/29/2011 TU 671 EQ 674
Current Score: TU 754 EQ 694 EX 697
Wallet: NFCU Visa Sig 25k, Amex Lowes 22k, NavCheck 15k, Amex PRG, Amex Zync, Discover It 13.5k, Amazon Visa 5k
Platinum Spade Garden Club Member: App Free since 1/1/13. No more apps til who knows when?

SP CLI with NFCU seem to be all the rage these days. perhaps he should try for those first before applying for new cards.

I'll take a picture when it comes in the mail. I may frame the letter that comes with it as this is my first 20k limit card.

He did that in January...

 

I personally think he needs more than one individual credit card account....  Maybe one is enough... who knows. 

 

I think both spouses should have a minimum of 2 credit cards, and some positive installment history on their credit reports... so that they have their own history and accounts established if something were to happen to me.

 

He does have AU accounts, and ACM accounts, co-applicant on NFCU New Car Loan.   Basically piggybacking to get re-established after some rough times.

Re: Got lost & couldn't find my way to the garden so...

Deifnitely needs more than one card. Push for cards that match yours and his spending habits though. like PenFed Platinum Rewards for gas 5pts, BCP 6% groceries, PenFed Travel Amex 5pts on travel, etc.

 

Given that he has AU, ACM and one of his own cards, builder cards are probably not needed. Go for the rewards cards tha fit your lifestyle. good luck.

 

Too bad you could get a PFD from CITI. I would consider GW'ing them every week if possible until they remove the CO.

Re: Got lost & couldn't find my way to the garden so...

Congrats on your new cards

 

However

 

 

You have the right to remain silent!

You have the right to an attorney!

If you can not afford an attorney a garden attorney will be appointed for you! 

 

Until your court date you are under garden arrest and a ankle bracelet will be supplied...Lol

 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
