I didn't know the cc companies would do that. Iwant all the cards I have and this makes me real nervous because Ive opened them all in month!

according to your sig, I think you'll be fine. You have 3 gecrb cards, discover and b of a. If you've gotten all of them in a month, then you've done well and should stop now and gsrden for 6 mos or longer. Call the gecrb CCs after 4th stmt cuts for CLIs and you'll be good. Main thing is to keep util low, even if it means paying some CCs before the stmt cuts, just so ifCCs soft you, they don't get freaked out. 

 

The op opened 15 new accts in under 3 mos. That's a lot, even for this forum! Smiley Happy

Re: oh uh i poked the bear(BARCLAYS)

Just wanted to chime in on this thread and say "wow!!!"

 

Now report to the garden and hang out for a while. I mean a long while.

 

Take this advice from a stranger as well as someone who's been down this road at a similar age.

Re: oh uh i poked the bear(BARCLAYS)

Wow! That's alot....I take is that barclays is the only creditor that has said something to you about it? I only have 6 cards from a months time and when I saw this I started worrying about my discover card because I love it and also have not used it yet......I'm glad it all worked out for you

im pretty sure eveyone has noticed my amount of new accounts but because my utl is as low as it can get and i pay my balances as soon as they post, they are giving me a break. i tried apping for chase CSP twice and at that time i had 12 new accounts and they mentioned the new account but didnt give me a warning or anything.

@gettnthere

i was first approved for 7500 but they then lowered it to 2000 -_- because of too many new accounts/INQs lol they told me i could go to the branch to discuss the first cl but i dont really wanna drive to westborough. my latest EQ score from them is 681.
