How young are you?

[ Edited ]

I have always wondered how many people there are on this forum around my age? i know some people mention it but i dont really pay attention so i would like to know who is, lets say 23 or younger, and what are your goals at this point in your life? I think the younger you are with good goals, the better you will be later on in life. I'll start it off.

 

Im 20 years old, started building my credit at age 18. I have 2 cap 1 cards, a Chase Freedom and an AMEX BCE, along with a 48 month auto loan for my used 2006 G35 at 1.98%.

Income : 41k

 

My goals include, buying a home for myself by the time im 21 and getting a Chase Saphire Preffered. Once i get the CSP im done getting cards.

 

So now lets hear what you guys have to say!   :smileyhappy:

Re: How young are you?

If you're 20 years old and you've had a credit history since 18 years old, I think you can get approved for Sapphire Preferred. I just got a confirmation for CSP approval emailed to me. I'm 19, have student loans, and my credit scores are almost similar to yours. 

 

GOAL: Buying a home before age 25 and maybe an Amex Black Card or JP Morgan Pallidium x.x before my life is over lol...*cough*

Chase Freedom $5k, Chase Sapphire Preferred
Amex Zync, Amex Gold
Macys $400, L&T $1500, Saks Fifth $1600

Re: How young are you?

Are you still going to school? And what line of work do you do to be making 41k as a 20 years old. I'm impressed since I'm almost 20 and no way close to your credit score or income lol. Well I hope as soon as I graduate to find a job and get my own house. That's the plan! Also to be near the mid-high 700s
TU 746 (10/13)
GOAL: 750+
