Congrats on the increase @AverageJoesCredit as you definitely deserve it! Wishing you peace and much happiness during this holiday season and beyond!
@AverageJoesCredit Congratulations, that is so exciting! Navy is amazing! That's so encouraging.
You and your family will be in my prayers at this time. I know a little bit about what it's like to be caring for an ailing family member and what it can do to your finances. I am wishing you all the best. We LIEers have to stick together!
You have an advantage right now because you're educated about credit and can better recover and/or avoid many problems that a lot of us have had when faced with a situation like this. I am confident that you'll come out ahead in the end!
Congratulations on your CLI's! Thank you for sharing this info with us! Sending prayers up for you and your family!
Congratulations on the CLIs, AJC! I really hope things work out for you and your family.

Congratulations on your NFCU success!
Congrats AJC! You and other guys you mentioned are an inspiration to many and seem to have to work twice as hard to achieve those goals. The DPs and input you guys have given here has made so much easier for a lot of us. Since Dec of last year I have been helping my Mom build her credit. She's retired, so her $25K per year and zero (ever) credit history has made it a much trickier to navigate. With what I've learned here you guys, in a little over a year I have managed to help her a get Chase (Amazon) card, Cap 1 (Walmart) card, Sync Lowe's, and she was just approved for an AMEX Blue Cash Everyday card this week. Her combined limits are a little over $10K and with the help and knowledge I've received here, I was able to do it by first making her an AU on my oldest cards and then strategically applying for the right cards and knowing when to ask for CLI's. I was able to start her credit journey with no junk cards and only one toy limit.
I could not have done this without the help of you guys!
