Re: How old are you, and...

I just turned 55 on Saturday.  Got my first card at age 28 ... another late bloomer!  Back then I had 3...Vic Sec., Crap one & a Firestone store card.

 

Screwed up all but the Firestone & had to start over in 02.  Found this site & never looked back.

I'm 63 and got my first "Bankamericard' at 23 when working for BofA in Pasadena. I partiularly loved using it to put $.25/gallon gas in my raggetty '65 bug.

Hey Everyone! 

 

I'm 22, never had a CC but had, paid, and closed a 600$ CL from my Credit Union. I'm late in the game as well.
