It's my "myfico" birthday!

It has been exactly one year since I joined this wonderful community!  Since then, I have spent 150,898 minutes on the forum -- this translates to almost 2,515 hours.  I have read 129,326 messages, started 16 topics, and made 134 replies.

 

While I no doubt have gleaned more knowledge than I have provided, the things I have learned since joining have been priceless.  I have successfully rehabbed my student loans, received my first credit card that I have had in years, learned about the value of the Walmart card, gotten a few other store cards, negotiated PFDs, sent countless GWs, found and corrected an incorrectly reported tax lien, and set a firm foundation for building knowledge in regard to my credit.

 

A year ago, I joined with the goal of financing a home for my family.  At the risk of jinxing the whole thing, I am proud to say that we are currently under contract on our dream home with the hopes of closing by the end of May.

 

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who contributes so positively to not only my success, but to the success of everyone on the forum!!!

I used to post my scores here. However, I'm prone to motion sickness and the ups and downs were nauseating.

Happy MyFico birthday and best wishes

 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
