How This Board Has Helped Me



In the last 6 months I have taken the advice given on this board.  I started out with a score around 528 and now it's 647.  I had the following cards:


Capital One Mastercard ($1,200 limit)

Capital One Visa $1,200 limit)

Target ($200 limit)

Care Credit (1,000 limit)

Sam's Club (1,000 limit)


I've now been able to get an American Express with a $5,000 limit, an increase to $3,500 for Care Credit and Walmart $1,000.  I work for a law firm making around $70,000 and have a part-time job transcribing workers' comp tapes.  I was just diligent about paying everything off each pay period and now I owe nothing on any card but the American Express $400 which I will pay off next pay period.  I can't thank everyone on this board who has contributed so much to my knowledge on credit.  Yes, my credit has a ways to go to increase.  There are two delinquencies that were from years ago that I'm trying to work out a settlement on, but I am so pleased with the results of the last few months.
