Just paid off all of my credit cards!!!!!

I just paid off the following accounts:

Citi-$700

Bankamericard- $1600

Amex Zync-$149

Citi Preferred Rewards-$1200

HSBC BestBuy- $16

AMEX Accelerated Reward- $500

 

Wow that took literally 4 months to get it paid off... & it felt good!!!! Not putting myself back into that position anytime soon since my income is very limited because I'm a college student.

Haha thanks guys, luckily most of my cards are 0% intro for 12 months, so I wasn't really paying any interests at all. Time to start saving!!
