Re: Lowes or Home Depot - which is better?

I know, this forum makes it even harder to garden.

 

Too much talk of shiny plastic. Since I joined, I have opened an Amex Hhonors and a Chase Freedom.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

What aspects of the Chase Freedom caused you to stray? They approved me for $5k @ 23%, but denied me the interest free period.

Re: Lowes or Home Depot - which is better?

For me, GE sucks. Have no idea why but I NEVER  get an increase from them other than Care Credit who eventually gave a nice increase. I have had a Lowes card with a $600 CL for 3 years...Will not increase it. Strangly though GE seems to give me a card whenever I apply however. Currently I have 5 cards. Probably ran about 4K minimum through there with no CLI. Home Depot went from 1K to 5 K in 6 months.

Well I had only been app free for 23 days. My inital plan was to wait for UTIL to go down (at 24%) before applying at the end of the year. I really just want to sock drawer my CAP1 card. I really wanted a main prime card that will grow with me and I feel Freedom will do that. Plus they have a nice cash back program. I'm done applying for cards now!! LOL.
