I am so guilty of making purchases based on statement dates.  I try to "float" my purchases under the utilization radar.  Buy something after the statement cuts and then pay it off before the next statement cuts. LOL!! GUILTY!

Re: You're a Credit Addict If...

Glad to see I'm not the only one!

 

CC phone numbers and at least one EO number stored in my contacts

 

Make purchases based on when a statement closes. Food? Who needs food!? I can wait until the next billing cycle!

 

I look at my Credit Karma almost daily. And I know it won't update until Thursday.

 

Sign in to check my credit card balances often.

 

Figure out what I should pay and when to make sure that I don't pay any interest. No fee balance transfers works great for that. 

 

At one time I didn't think to much about all of this. I just went on with life and everything fell into place. Now it's an important hobby that I can benefit from being active in.

... since you can't app quite so soon (watching hp's), you decide to order a replacement card from a current creditor, just to relive the "thrill" of getting plastic in the mailbox.
