So far so good....

JUST got back from opening my FIRST checking & savings acct from my local CITI branch and everything was successful. Im going to return in 10 days with my paycheck to deposit money, get temporary debit card, and set up online acct.

Also just paid of dads Brooks Brothers CC that had a $146.00 balance. Its now "0" and will be closed once new statement generates. CL $1,400

Same with dads Best Buy CC it had a $139 balance and its now at "0" and will also be closed. CL $1,200

ALL IN ALL IM FEELING POSITIVE, and seeing the light. I do got WAY more CCs to pay off. "Step by step"

Thanks for all the advice and help my fico family!!!

Proud of you...Wooo Hooo 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
