well well well.. it's time to make some calls!!!

Amazon you should call credit solutions and ask for a $3k limit.

total reards will take at least 6 months probably, but go ahead and request online... it should be sp and they will tell you (I always feel it gets them watching your account knowing you want more!

Same with Angels (good old comenity... they can be a little slow at first but then they get going!)

credit one is 6 months or 12 months? they are pretty straight forward with telling you...

matrix i have no idea... but i know i don't like you having it! :smileytongue:

kay is 12 months

goodys... who is that?

fingerhut... leave it!

Re: Should i pay down a little on all cards,with a balance or pay off one completely?

see, i went 60 days late twice during my last car loan that still reflects on my credit...they added insurance to my car loan midway through cause i switched insurance companies and forgot to add the lienholder with the new insurance company, which made it instantly jump from 20 days to 50 days cause it cost more than a car payment for the insurance, and neither the insurance company nor the credit union wwanted to "hear" it.  needless to say i am member of niether now! Gaurdian credit union is terrible with their customer service. A little back story to my bad cards..lol

Which would be better for my credit score? i owe approx. $250 on two cards(credit one & Matrix) & $150 on total rewards visa. I am getting a $500 bonus check for car sales this month. Should i a liitle on all my cards($100 or so) or pay off one and make minimum payments...yes i know i shouldn't carry a balance but i had some unexpected expenses come up last month. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

 

Thanks for the input,

AUBURN


I'd pay the 2 $250 cards down to $0. That way, you will only have one card reporting a balance instead of three. Good luck.
