You're a Credit Addict If...

myFicoers...not sure if i'm posting this in the right spot, but since the topic is about credit cards i figured this might be the right spot :smileyhappy: being a forum rat for over 15 years now, one of the fun topics i've always come across was knowing when you've been addicted to a particular hobby or what not...since joing in march of this year and reading thru many topics and posts, there's been a general idea as to what would constitute a credit addict...anyhow, let me start this one:

 

-You're a credit addict if you start stalking your mail carrier for new plastic!

-...you start identifying stores by their UW

 

so let's hear what else you guys think :smileyhappy:

-you check your CR's daily
-you make purchases based on statement dates
-you calculate your util as often as you pull your CR's

-You don't just have the credit analyst number saved as a contact but the EO number as well.
-You hold out for the best offers on the cards you want because your endless research has informed you of the best offers for those specific cards.
