The first time I'm making a purchase that can be done with a CC.
Sometimes I think you guys think way to into this stuff.

I start using it right away. I got my CSP back in 10/16 and my first purchase was a $1800 plane ticket. 5 days later i charged another $2100 plane ticket. Nothing bad happened and I'm already maxing it out. Since its a NPSL, I might try charging it past its soft limit see what happens. hehe. It's my first NPSL might as well try it.
Actually, I was chatting with Chase's executive office on another issue with a different card I have and they didn't mention anything about my charges and balance. I don't expect that they would have an issue as they extended credit to me to use it and I'm not using it outisde the terms and conditions.

"How soon do you use your new cc?"
As soon as I rip open the envelope?
No, seriously (sorry, couldn't resist the above quip)... I apped for the cards I have in order for them to fill specific roles. So, as soon as I've activated the card and a purchase needs to be made that is appropriate for that card, I'll make it. The issuer wants me to use their card, so if it's beneficial to me I'll do so.
