I have 3 CCs. I ain't gonna get no more :smileyvery-happy:

And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid

That's a good number. I have (1) of my own (1) with my hubby and I want an Amex Blue/Blue Cash or Clear and another Amex. That will be plenty of CC's to juggle without me getting stressed.

Re: dog's new t/l confession...

Hey dog - Question for ya... with those scores (min are mid 6), how can I get some decent cards? I went online to do the Hawaiian BofA (recommended by this forum) and they turned me down - offfered the secured card instead. I'm waiting for some letters to be received and acted upon as some ollllld stuff is still on my report paid, but with many lates, so the overall picture says I'm good with everything except payment history. But my current history for the last 3 years is perfect. I can't wait for some of this old stuff to go away!!! It's paid, but it just won't go away!!! Good job on your end!

Re: dog's new t/l confession...

well, gotagoal, a lot of it depends on which report the ccc pulls....as you can see, my amex success rate has been great, due to my fairly decent ex score.  could you provide your fico (fako) scores to me?  hawaiian b of a spanked me too, but they did give me the b of a secured.  if your ex score is good, i would try the amex cards first....and i would suggest trying delta, hilton or starwood, then possibly waiting a couple of weeks and asking for the amex blue cash.  keep your ut at 0 on your first amex's, i think it helped me pull off the blue cash.  another factor that may be a trick (or not) is that i filled out a new app for the amex blue cash, rather than doing the deal where you logon to your current amex and request a new card.  may or may not have helped.  the bad thing is the lates that you mentioned, and how recent they are...it may behoove you to try your gw's and see what happens before you make your new applications.
