Citi card back in 2000. Lost the card so I decided the smart thing to do was just close it out all together. Brilliant!!!! Live and learn.

Re: What Was The First Credit Card In Your Name?

Some of you may know this but this Sears card I got, well, it was the first of many defaults. So question could also be, what ever happened to your first card. Is it still open or closed? Or did you do like me?:smileysad:

Re: What Was The First Credit Card In Your Name?

I go way back.  I got my first card (Bank of America Visa) in 1979.  It had a whopping $150.00 CL.  I was 21 (giving away my age) at the time.  Most of us that grew up in the 60s and 70s did not have very much exposure to credit cards.  I remember my parents paid cash for everything, and if they didn't have the money, they simply didn't buy it!  They didn't get their first card (Sears) until the 70s after already being married for 30+ years, and they rarely ever used that card!  I wish I would've followed in their footsteps!!!

That is too funny, I was thinking along the same lines except I was thinking we should make a new thread called "What was your first credit card slip up?"
 
My first card was a "Florida State University Credit Union MasterCard"
 
This was when I first went to FSU in 2002. It had a $500 CL. My first purchase was dinner with my girlfriend at this Cuban Restaurant Gordos.
 
Car went over limit, started getting big charges, became a $750 debt and mom had to come in and bail me out. Live and learn. Card is now closed.  Oh ... girl is gone too.

It was cool too. It came in the most awesome design. It was like a real nice woodfinish desk with pens and other stuff and a framed FSU diploma spread on the desk.

American Express Green, upgraded along the way to Gold. Got it in 1987 my freshman year in college. I still have the card, and it's the household first choice to use (DH is AU). My next card was either a Citi or Chase, I still have that one too.
