Yea sure, ya betcha!
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 !!!!
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.
And pull them from myfico.com/12 so you can see the same info your lenders can see. That's eye-opening
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.

All I have to do is remind myself how irresponsible I once was with CC debt and that stops me in my tracks!!!! Five years and counting since my last application.
