Before you leave your house to go shopping, pump gas or eat out, you know EXACTLY which card will get the love!

I phrase it "I don't want to take the hard pull to my credit report"

Or the flipside of this:

 

Your In the checkout line and they offer you a credit card app and you start spouting off a million questions:

 

-will I be approved??

-my FICO score is --- will I get a good CL?

-will my other creditors AA me I got a lot of new accounts!

-what bureau do they pull???

 

Meanwhile the cashier is looking at you like you were dropped on your head as a kid and your looking at them like YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS INFORMATION!!! ITS MY CREDIT ON THE LINE!!! HAVE YOU NO RESPECT FOR MY FICO SCORES?!?!?!?!?

Re: You may be a Credit Card Geek if…

You worry about AAs.

 

Ask cashier: "is it a hard or soft pull?" or "What's the interest rate?" and then get annoyed when they don't know what you're talking about.

 

It's funny. I really haven't seen any deals at the register worth taking an HP to get. I really only use cash-back cards and nothing ever sounds better than cash.

You're a credit card geek, when your are always hawking what cards people pay with and then you start to make credit/financial assumptions in you're mind.
