Though I'm temporarily in an app-free status, there's not much point in my checking in until after I've applied for and (I hope!!!) gotten my PenFed card sometime in February or March.
May I reserve a room that's close-ish to both the pool (there IS a pool?!) and the gym, for then?

I'm in! Already started on my own so the peer support will be good. My only potential deviance will be if I can wrangle my newly graduated B of A into an accelerated rewards Amex. But that should happen without an app when and if it does. No new apps until 2010.
I also vow to dump Credit Won on their anniversary date and continue to mess with Orchard customer service in any way I can. (Emails pointing out their stupidity while using the card only for a small recurring monthly charge vs. the 3k a month they used to get.)
I vow to continue PIF as a policy for CC's.
I vow to continue paying off non-CC debts and get them in the same boat as my CC situation.
I vow to continue adding to savings, Roth and 401 even if it makes me gag with the present financial climate.

I haven't app'd for anything since March of 2008 and I really don't see a card that blows me away or that I just have to have. To get to where I want to be will require time so I'll just sit here and wait.

Last year I was bad and got a new autoloan and a credit card. This year no app or indirect apps.
June 2009 - All INQs older than 1 year.

Count me in! My last app was Feb 2008 (costco AMEX). The only app I plan on this year is the refi of my mortgage (which Hauling said was allowed )
Cheers and good luck everyone!

I have not applied for credit for over a year now, and don't want any more cards
One car loan is a year old and the other is paid off, so no car loan.
BUT - I might change my HELOC this summer and do some stuff on the house over the next couple of years
