Congrats on your new CC, nice CL for a new CC too! If you haven't read the credit scoring 101 thread, I recommend you do. Come back with all of your questions.

Re: I RECIEVED MY FIRST CREDIT CARD

I JUST PULLED MYFICO SCORE WITH EQUIFAX MY FICO SCORE IS 785 WITH
NO ACCOUNTS OPENED
NO CLOSED ACCOUNTS
NO PUBLIC RECORDS
JUST ONE INQUIRY FROM CITIBANK
 
I DIDNT WANT TO GET CREDIT CARD CUASE MY PERANTS HAVE GOTTEN THEMSELF IN TROUBLE MANY TIMES WITH THEM
 
BUT I WAS TOLD I NEED SOME SORT OF CREDIT TO SHOW THAT I PAY ON TIME SO I APPLIED IT WHEN CITIBANK WAS AT MY CAMPUS, DIDNT EXPECTED TO GET ONE
SO SHOULD I APPLY FOR MORE CARDS TO GET BETTER USAGE OF CREDIT?

Huh? 785 is above the best 760+. You can buy a house right now? It takes years to get a score that high unless someone really knows how to add extra slices to the pizza pie. Never seen it with 1 account brand new. Probably a typo. I would get 2 or 3 more cards. It will build credit trade lines faster. Congrats on your first card!

If we never set higher goals we would never get as far.

Hey Wallet,
 
It sounds like you're doing just fine...especially only being 20 years old. Be sure and use your credit wisely.
 
And p.s. Try typing without all caps...It's a little hard to read...

You have an EQ FICO score of 785 with no accounts open? ZERO accounts? When did you apply for this CITI card. Figures they pulled EQ, they seem to do that a lot. Also, which card did you get?

Re: I RECIEVED MY FIRST CREDIT CARD

citi plat select for college students
applied back in june
do not know how or why i got that score
beginers luck i guess
but i do not want to get in trouble like my perants in dept ( now they do not own cc anymore they paid all they worked hard to pay) they always told me paying intrest is a waste of money
they tell me buy a 2 family house, were rent helps pay half the morgate at the begining, then after 10 years it will pay it all, do it young
 
lol sorry for that preaching

It's refreshing to see young folks such as yourself taking an interest in personal finance and learning to use credit responsibly. Tell your college friends to come here, we would love to help them out especially with student loan questions and responsible CC usage. Maybe I can share a war story or two about my college days at UT (university of Texas). GL to you!
