Which reminds me of a joke.

 

So, if a Palestinian and a Swede (I'm pretty much Swedish, genealogically speaking, so I hope I can tell this...) get married,

what do they name their first son?

 

Yassir Yabetcha :smileyvery-happy: !!!!

 

Sorry, couldn't help myself......

You should pull your scores.  That would force home the idea of just saying no to so many credit apps.


+1

And pull them from myfico.com/12 so you can see the same info your lenders can see.  That's eye-opening :smileysurprised:

 

jdsays: But I do think this forum makes me want to apply for things I dont need once I see someone else got approved....I have no will power. 

 

Yep - it's contagious!!!  I keep a running list of cards I might want to app for next year (just in case I forget about a nifty card that I might absolutely have to have)!!  Then, next year, I'll go over my list and maybe, MAYBE, pick a card - or two.

Thank you, from me too, for the note about myfico/12 ...  is this link publically, officially, advertised elsewhere on the site?   do you (or others) know of any other 'special' myfico links?

 

Also, that's a good idea about writing things down, then when ready going over the list.  It's good to be reminded of specials and 'oddballs' (as creditboards calls them) one saw before; but it's also a relief to realize a 'gotta die for' special isn't all that after all.
