Ooops, I left the garden. :)

Ooops, I left the garden. :)

I did 3 months in the garden, and I broke my streak today.  I could no longer resist Paypal (I assume this is backed by GE) sending me emails to apply for their Extras Platinum Mastercard.  

The upside? Approved for $3,000.  Now I have a Mastercard to complete my collection.  Now my inquiries are up to 16.  Back to the garden until October 2013.  I promise.

 

 edit: They pulled Tranunion and they say I have a credit score of 700!!!!!!!!! I'm in the 700 club!

AMEX Platinum | Discover It $20.3k | Chase Sapphire Reserved $16k | Chase United $12k | AMEX SimplyCash Plus Business $11.6k | AMEX Schwab $9k | AMEX BCEP $8.2k | Citi Costco Anywhere Visa $8k | Chase Amazon Visa $8k | Chase Sapphire Preferred $7k | Chase Freedom $5k | Citi Simplicity $5k | Paypal Extras Platinum $5k | Wells Fargo $5k | Citi Best Buy $4.2k | Citi Visa Signature $3k | Care Credit $3k

GE is very nice with CLI's, remember to ask for one every 4th statement cut.
