Re: Please Reply: How Many Credit Cards Do YOU Own?

Ever since joining myFico, I was able to get:

 

- Cap One Secured MC

- HSBC Secured Visa

- HSBC BBRWZ MC

- Fingerhut

- Paypal buyer credit

- Cap One cash rewards MC (approved just last night)

 

So 6 credit cards total, if you count the PP buyer credit as a CC "card".  I need to stop applying...I got all the above in like the last 2-3 months.

TU: 603 – EQ: 569 – EX: N/A – May 2010

Five, with a sixth on the way:

Citi Diamond Preferred

Citi Dividend World MC (just approved)

I intend to add Penfed Plat Visa at some point, but they denied me last time I applied for it.

Re: Please Reply: How Many Credit Cards Do YOU Own?

I'm not sure. My credit reports list the following:

 

1 Visa - Joint

1 Amex - Individual

1 MC - Authorized User

 

Don't know if I "own" 1, 1.5, 2 or 3 cards. :smileytongue:
