Re: Need Christmas Credit Card

Well, I think you may fall in your old habits.....what's wrong with your capital one cards?

 

 

Also, you do know shopping at Fingerfut is like shopping at Aaron's or Rent A Center...everything is overpriced...

I'm sure he knows that, sometimes you have to take what your credit profile allows you to get.

+1. OP's BK was discharged last month. I'd focus on gardening and in a couple of years with some distance on that BK, I have no doubt OP can get high limits with BK-friendly CCs.

Re: Need Christmas Credit Card

After reading the auto loan thread from OP if everything he listed in that thread was IIB your better off leaving credit alone, sorry to say. That is a crazy amount of debt!

Re: Need Christmas Credit Card

Yeah after reading some of your other posts I'm going to say don't app for cards just for christmas shopping. Try layaway at a store or something, it's a much better option than putting it on CCs.

+100000, thats the best advice honestly. you've burnt every major lender out there for crazy amounts of money so they are not going to forget anytime soon. i would def follow a cash only lifestyle for a WHILE.
