months from the time we eliminated our debt too get scores in the 700 range and get the better interest rates..
They know this and that you are on the way and that is why they solicit so heavily!

My point here exactly as I wonder if they give us crap credit in order to keep from getting better credit...

Re: Crappy Credit offers coming out of the woodwork..

good point. I think I don't get offers that often because I have fraud alerts with the CRA's and that is supposed to halt unsolicited mail offers.

That being said I got that crappy $30,000 pre-approved car loan offer from capital one today. You are right though--a car is one of the worst investments you can make. you might as well take your money and throw it into a fire
