I'm so excited!

So people may have seen a few posts I've had before. In 2004 I was a victim of identity theft and fast forward to now my report is clear to the point of having no credit except a AU of a chevron card that is closed now though.

I didn't want to go the secured card route and decided on a whim after seeing a few posts about the PayPal MasterCard and me having used PayPal for 8 years I hit that apply button and was approved!! Yay this is my first credit card and the start of my journey to build credit for a house in a few years. 1k limit! Smiley Happy

Re: I'm so excited!

     Awesome. What were your FICO scores when you applied if you don't mind me asking?
