New to the community

Looking for any advice anyone can offer! Make good money but feel on rough times. Have 8 accts (occured 1-2.5 years ago but trying to have them removed) that are paid in full charge offs; however, all my other accts are reflected as current...no lates...paid on time. Have an orchard acct with $320 limit (use every month PIF), Saks credit card $100 limit (work there part-time for the discounts), husband jared's account as a co-applicant (balance $1163) and recently was approved for a BoA CL of $3000. Should I apply for anymore credit? I would like to apply for a AMEX Costco...but if anyone have any other cards suggetions I am interested. Thanks

Are these scores FICO or FAKO?

I think your best efforts are removal of the bad accounts.  Keep working the PFD and GW process...  and Good Luck.

TRUST me, the best thing you can do for your credit now is READ, READ, READ this forum and your score will sky rocket in the next year to two. :smileyhappy:
