Wheres my spade? I'm in the garden.

It's been a productive four months. I paid off all my CCs and went from my highest CL being my BofA plat at 1.2k to a CSP at 5k, with an amex sprinkled in there, back dated to 2002. With 7 HPs showing this year, someone please chain me to the garden fence. Smiley Happy

Re: Wheres my spade? I'm in the garden.

despite all the HPs, I think it was all worth it. Went from a total CL of 2.8k to about 12k. Next step is a mortgage this time next year.

The whole thing just seems so daunting. I'm going in monday to a local CU to switch over from my big bank, and I'm going to ask about the propper steps to take to work towards that.

A checking/savings account doesnt count as a HP, right? I'm not looking to open any LOC with them, I just want to establish a relationship, and get on the right track. No new accounts are a given, though.

Re: Wheres my spade? I'm in the garden.

I got a hardpull last year from opening a checking account in a town I was working in for only six months. UGH! Ive since been transferred back to my home area and closed the account. I sent them a very nice letter and asked them if they would remove the hard but they said they cant. Double UGH!

Really? was it a large bank, or a CU?
