Re: What causes the "app itch"?

Just graduated from college. I couldn't get any credit cards because my accounts showed "insufficient satisfactory performance"... so I finally got a Barclaycard after a recon. After that I let the floodgates open.

 

I figured if I opened 1 or 2 cards, it would increase my AAoA overtime but if I got another card it would ding it. So might as well just take a small hit and reap the benefits over time. I'm in no hurry to buy a car or a home so it worked out fine.

 

.... except for my credit score .... for now.

Barclaycard Apple Financing (2100), Discover More (2500), US Bank Visa Platinum (2000), CFNA (2200), Chase Freedom (500), Capital One (1500), HSBC Platinum Master Card (750), Nebraska Furniture Mart (1000)
