I think I have a problem! lol

So, I have about 8 credit cards, however I only use about 4 actively, only carring a balance on one and PIF the others.  But I always feel the "urge" to get a new one...what is wrong with me?  haha.  I recently applied for a preapproval offer that I received in the mail for a 7.99% fixed apr and felt it was too good to pass up as a "what if" card.  Was this a smart idea?  I did feel a bit guilty and disappointed once I got it, because I honestly don't know why I did it.  Does this happen to anybody else?

Starting Score: 703
Current Score: 7/8/10: TU - 738 EQ - 750
Previous Score: 1/22/10: TU - 703 EQ - 714
Goal Score: 750

Situations like this are what the old Sleigh Center and newer Concorduser Center are for!

As long as you continue to read the credit boards it is a rare individual who can escape the siren song for very long. :smileyhappy:

I'm in the same boat.
