trying to help parents

Anybody on here had experience with this?


Mine is simple but I thought maybe it would be interesting to here other stories you guys have had before.


So, my situation, my mom has a card with a 10k limit and $2,600 usage

basically she hates it and the interest is hurting her as she can only afford to pay a little above minimum

What can I do to talk her into a good BT card, Ive explained all the benefits but need to choose "the right one" so to speak.


Starting Score: 635 Current Score: 686 Citi Pull
Goal Score:720s
Tried to use Images but it was all Wibbly, Wobbly, and Timey-Wimey.
Cap One Quicksilver $1,300 Wal-Mart $1,000 Best Buy $1.5K DiscoverIT $2.5K Chase Freedom $3K AMEX BCE $2K
Chase Slate - $1,000
AMEX Everyday - $4,000
Sallie Mae - $2,500
