Re: Garden Club Meeting - October 2012

Starting over, for the long haul now.

Apped last week, but it was worth it. Moving into a new apartment next month, so the 400 statement credit will be nice for all the miscellaneous things we are going to need.


But, definitely am shying away from apping just for a sign-up bonus. It's a guaranteed way to kill your AAOA in the long term.

Lesson learned, but I know I don't need an "excellent" credit score for another few years. It just feels good to know I'm ahead of the game once the decision to buy a home comes around.

The garden is a great place to be for those planning for the non-immediate future!
