Re: Applying for new credit after buying a house??

I can't comment on the HD card but I can on the Lowes.  I really like my Lowes card because you automatically get 5% at the register, as stated above, or (if it's over a certain amount - I forget the amount, but it's not much) 6 months interest-free.  It's backed my GEMB so they seem to be generous with their CLIs.  I have Citi cards too but their 0% offers run out and owning a home...well, you will always have some sort of major expense:  siding/roof/windows/furnace/pipes/remodling/carpet/tile/porch, etc. etc.  Smiley Very Happy
