Re: Pending App Spree!

Sorry to hijack but how much do personal loans weigh on credit reports? It would obviously be a small loan just about 1000, I wouldn't spend any just make the payments, let it report for the 6 months then pay off the remaining balance would this really increase my score or be a waste of time? I have a butt load of student loans. If anyone can bring light to this or send me a link to a forum on here explaining this that would be appreciated :smileyhappy:

Store cards are a bad idea they give little to nothing in return compared to other cards, for instance I just recently got a Mileage Plus with United for 50,000 miles sign up bonus + 5,000 for adding an authorized user, and 10k points bonus for spending 25k in a year (very easy for most people if you include mortgage) This itself got me enough points to take 1 free trip across the world.

 

 

 


How do you pay for your mortgage with a credit card?

Chase Sapphire Preferred $17,800; Discover IT $15,000; PenFed Plat Rewards Signature $14,000; AMEX BCE $11,800; AMEX SPG $8,100; Citi Simplicity $10,000; Chase United MileagePlus Explorer $5,000; Chase Ink Classic $3,000; GE Lumber Liquidators $7000; GE Care Credit $2000

Maybe he requested a check and used it towards his mortgage ?
