MyFICO has made me spread the word to others

I think I'm starting to get annoying with my friends.

 

I've been lurking the forums and occasionally posting since February and I cannot be happier about finding out about MyFICO. This board has taught me so much, now all my friends in college come to me for advice regarding credit cards. I often tell people alot of things about credit cards.. even if they don't want to hear it. Hehe. 

 

The only downside is that I probably judge others now based on the credit card they use or if they use a debit card. I almost instantly can recognize what type of prime lending credit card they're using. Smiley Happy

 

That feeling though, when someone recognizes or points out something about my AMEX PRG just makes me feel so good inside.

LOL I know the feeling but I try to hold my judgement bc I know there are countles numbers of people who have never even heard of these types of forums and don't have the knowledge that we have and yet they have amazing credit scores and credit profiles.

Why not get 1-15% off of everything you buy by using a credit card?  Having a credit score of 814 is supposed to save you money.  And you don't like free consumer protection on your purchases?
