Approved for GE Money, Fink's Jewelers. So I HAD to buy the watch :-)

Well, I've been admiring a particular watch for quite a while (Rolex Deepsea). Filled out the app, gave them my BCP to swipe, and in about 10 seconds was approved for the total price of $10,100. My EQ was 696 due to some high balances reporting. My consulting business has been booming the last couple months and I'm making some large purchases for the projects. I was kind of hoping it wouldn't cover the entire thing so I'd have a way to talk myself out of it! But thanks to you guys...haha. I blame all of you for my good credit ;-)

 

This month alone I'll earn about $330 on my BCP and my Venture about $550 (30,000 miles from signup and 25,000 from purchases). I am really pleased with where I am now in the credit world. Even floating around 700, I scored a great card, the Venture. So scores aren't everything, it definitely pays to know how to build an attractive profile. This forum is immensely valuable, thanks!

 

Between my Blue Cash Preferred, and my Business Venture, I've pretty much got all my bases covered. Well, maybe a good restaurant card :-)

Just remember to sock some of that money away that you are enjoying the "good time" with the way financial markets swing these days and many other aspects what is good today can go away tomorrow.

 

Take it from someone who has seen it happen to them on more than one occasion. I got off that train a long time ago !!!!!  I used to have enough watches to outfit a small country. That stuff no longer matters. Beating the banks at their own game is where I get off.

Haha. I could get extremely wreckless with buying watches so I have to contain myself. I still love my Omega Planet Ocean, but the Deepsea is sweet :-) And I can always sell the Rolex and get my money back, which is a pretty marked benefit to buying the brand. I put 2k down on it and the rest is interest free for 12 months. I'll pay it off and get a GMT Master II next :-) Or a Blue dial Submariner. I really like that one. Getting off topic lol...

Good advice. I joke that the Rolex was my "savings plan", but yes its always good to have a rainy day fund. I admit I've splurged on a couple things I've had my eye on, but I think I'm ready to reel it in and focus on propping myself up for a rainy day.
