Re: Sock Drawer some cards...anyone else?

Dont mean to thread jack but this is somewhat on the subject =) I'm trying to rebuild my credit and get higher limits, should I SD most of my cards or continue to use them in the hopes it helps with CLIs down the road?

Re: Sock Drawer some cards...anyone else?

Can you consider a card SD if you don't carry it with you and only use it to pay bills and PIF? :womanlol:

 

Let's see, I have SD the following:

Victoria's Secret, Catherines, Avenue, JCP, Genisys Visa, Barclay's, DCU Visa, NFCU Visa & MC, Sears, HSN, Wally's, Amazon & SDFCU.  Actually Amazon and NFCU have a balance that I am paying down now so they will be in the SD till 2014.  

 

The only two that I use quite frequently now are Freedom and Discover, but if Discover doesn't give me a higher CL soon it will be SD as well.  My spending pattern is too high compared to that CL which means I would have to pay more often.  So even though I carry it I use it sparingly.


Major CC's - Barclay's ($5.5K) | Barclay's Sallie Mae MC ($5K) | DCU ($7.5K) | Discover IT ($1.4K) | Genisys Visa ($1.4K) | NFCU Visa ($22K) | Navcheck ($15K) | Chase Freedom ($5K) | SDFCU Visa ($8K) | Amex BCP ($9.5K) | Amex Delta ($10K) |Store CC's| -Amazon ($4K) | Catherines ($850) | JCP ($4K) | Macy's ($1.7K) | Avenue ($850) | Victoria's Secret ($1.4K) | Walmart ($4.1K) | Paypal SC ($1.3K) | HSN ($2.5) | Sears ($2.6K) | Sams Club ($4.1K) |Goal|: Age with grace to 750 across the board |Last app|: 3/3/2014

Re: Sock Drawer some cards...anyone else?

My kays card i sock drawered once before for 8mo, and they raised my limit from $400 starting to $1100 =) so maybe some of them it would help, put them up for 6mo (PIF first) then when you get them back out to use them call and ask for a CLI??? might be worth it! tell the customer service rep you haven't used it in so long due to the low credit limit lol
