Re: Big Jump!!

So you got a 34 point increase because of the new card added to your account or is this the first month report after having the card? I just got a cap one card myself it would be nice to see that increase on my end. lol

Re: Big Jump!!

Your mileage will definitely vary. The card probably put a dent in the OP's utility and added a necessary revolving account that the OP did not have before. Everyone's reaction to a new positive will certainly be different.
