I wish I had good credit because...

Aside from just having it, because it's good to have, what are you most looking forward to having good credit for?

 

Personally for me, it's to be able to get an airline rewards card (United/Star Alliance). Chase used to have a debit card but they did away with it, we used to talk all of our trips using the points (lots of business expenses) and it's been such a bummer without it, we'd have at least a two free roundtrip tickets to Europe every two years, plus a domestic ticket yearly.

 

Can't wait until I'm able to apply and get approved for one, they seem to be pretty hard to get though. :smileysad:

FYI Bank of America has a rewards DEBIT card with Alaska Airlines, and you can use the miles to codeshare with other airlines :-)

I'd like to buy a house someday and be ready when I find the one I want...not have to hurry and do damage control at that point.

Re: I wish I had good credit because...

We want to take out a mortgage this year so our boys can have space to run around and play. And so my husband can get a job that matches his skill set because his industry takes credit reports seriously (not sure if they can legal do that, but whatever).
