What's almost as good as being approved for cards?

Getting them in the mail!!! It's like a double shot of gratification!  Getting new cards didn't mean much to me before. Now it's a good feeling. Like I've accomplished something. Walmart, Merrick and Barclay (Apple) arrived today. Feel like a little kid at Chirstmas! Just waiting for Target to arrive. That will replace my temp card. Now I will let them sit in the garden for awhile and see if I can get them to grow every 4-5 months.

My Wallet - Cap 1 - $300. Cap 1 - $750. Orchard - $950.
New as of 8/29 - Target - $3000. Barclay's - $2000. Merrick - $1000. Walmart $600. And as of 9/22 - JCP $200.

Yup... $3000. Shocked is an extreme understatement! I looked at it a few times to make sure it didn't say $300.00. Target is my highest limit. I don't know what to say about that one.

Re: What's almost as good as being approved for cards?

When my cards arrived I literally stared at them for about 30 minutes. I was like look, that says my name right there...lol! CONGRATULATIONS!!! I want a Target card soooo bad I can taste it :smileywink:

started mid 500's. Disputed incorrect items and within a month or two my scores have skyrocketed and continue to do so
EQ: 755 as of 8/2013
TU: 700
Experian(or as I call them, the devil) I have no clue, they haven't released my report
Goal=801 across the board!!! Not too far from this, hoping to garden until Christmas 2013
