Re: High Utilization

Please don't judge the OP. He is not asking for financial advice, nor is it really any of our business.

Re: High Utilization

Yes you are right, I got way off topic. I like to always keep an open mind.
If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

Hmmm.  I thought most people posting in this forum were asking for advice on financial matters.  I thought it was what it was here for!!

Re: High Utilization

I don't think anyone was judging,  most of us here have been down the debt road before and would hate to see someone else go down there too especially when you start to see warning signs.  Kind of wished I was part of this forum a few years ago when I did make some awfull financial decisions and had someone kind of question it,  it may could have saved me some of the hardship

Re: High Utilization

So - what is the concensus?  If I need to use credit in the next couple of months, it is better to open a new TL instead of increasing my current util?

Re: High Utilization

Basicially, the OP certainly could open more with his scores.. and doing so would benefit him assuming he does not charge them up. :smileyhappy:
