Re: when should I apply for freedom? Update... I applied

F*** yeah! I'm totally stoked for you! What limit did you get if you don't mine my asking?!?
WOW! So glad this forum is here!!!!!!

Just remember that the person you spoke with to get you approved deemed you creditworthy!
Some tips:
1. AlWAYS stay under 30% util., but try to stay less than 10%.
2. ALWAYS PAY ON TIME!
3. GROW your credit lines.
4. MINIMIZE interest cost if you carry a balance... Don't forget to throw yout creditors a couple of bucks in interest to keep 'em happy; credit is a mutually beneficial business transaction afterall.
5. And whatever else you wanna add in there!!!

Building my credit is fun, and it's a great way to improve my life and future prospects!
