    • I elected to pull the trigger on the new United card the other day.  As expected, there was a pull on EXP.  No instant approval.  I see a pull from the following day on a different bureau (TU). 
       
      I am curious whether this is becoming their new normal.  Recording still has the 'under review' message.  
       
      Scores at the time of the respective pulls are somewhere between 820-838 depending on just which flavor of Fair Isaac modeling was utilized...and as near as I can tell, I SHOULD be under 5/24 since the one that would have put me at 5/24 had been opened in the early part of June 2018 (thus being OUTSIDE of the two calendar year window). 
       
      Last time I opened a non-auto product with them was in the days of the Continental PresPlus card which I ditched after the merger with United.  I actually only expect to keep THIS one for the year since the fee is waived in year one and I want options for the airports that don't have a Centurion Lounge.

    • Hello, I've been playing with my cc debt for a while now. I've opened new 0% accounts as suggested on these threads. When the 0% is over I transfer it to another one with 0%, accounts that I already have open. Now with the situation that we are all in, it's going to be a little tougher to pay more than close to the minimums. We owe a total of $25k, I've also worked with my DH's available credit for the 0% cards. 
      I am so tired of this debt! Our credit is good over 700's. I've thought about a personal loan since we receive lots of promotions on these, are these loans personally guaranteed? 
      Years ago they weren't but so much has changed. 
      Thank you for all the suggestions.

    • First thank you for all the knowledge posted here, I have followed CB off and on for over 10 years. 
       
      So here is me current credit Pic and I don't know what approach to take... except getting credit one and the AT&T charge offs removed.
      Once I receive me new unsecured Cap 1 I'm hoping that gives me a score bump because I really don't have any open accounts as you can see. Discover said no to their secured card 😢 I have been a member of NFCU since 97 but my account is dormant just need to deposit money in savings to make active. But I was thinking I need to wait until I clean up my TU and bring scores up before trying for their secured card.
       
      I'm assuming the student loans are hurting me but didn't want to contact them until I got better guidance from you all. 
      I could desperately use some guidance from you all

    • Well as most of us know, BofA if nothing else, is at least fairly generous with their soft pull CLI requests on a regular six month basis. It has also been well established that BofA has a de facto MAX aggregate unsecured credit card limit of $99.9K for most mortals, however IIRC both Hege and PotO have exceeded this.
       
      So my question pertains to MAX aggregate BofA unsecured credit card limits in relation to total income so that we can set better/more realistic goals and expectations with BofA and not waste our efforts in pursuing limits beyond the BofA underwriting paradigm.
       
      My aggregate limits are just a fraction below 50% of total income, so how far should we push this?

    • So my ob office just called me back because I had a health question. The nurse told me I was due for an ultrasound but that they can’t schedule it because I’m in collections for $234. First, I had no idea we were past due but I’m not happy my nurse and probably my ob have access to my financial info. I feel like this could impact my care. I get being deactivated and not being able to schedule because of being past due. But the billing office should be the only one who has that info. If I called in, the receptionist should be the one to say they can’t schedule me until I talk to billing. It feels like a violation of privacy for the nurse to know bc it could impact how they see me and thus, how they care for me. Are drs and nurses allowed to know the billing info?

    • For myself, I am focusing on hoarding the cash and building up savings. I want to target to have one year of expenses in a savings before i think about moving back into investments. I am of course not sold that wall street is the best and only form of investments to have. I mean yea i got some invested still, but I also have Crypto and nice solid silver and good bullion for diversity. Actually metals have been performing very nicely with all of this going on.    I personally do not have huge confidence in the stock market, because I do predict a second Covid-19 reoccurance and i think it will completely devastate the economy more than it did the last time. Things have been semi-stable as the Govt keeps printing more cash and pumping it out, but that is a gravy train that cannot end well. While other countries have slowed/stopped, we are only hurting the value of the $ and sinking further beyond on currency valuation. We also just ended the $600 stimulus for unemployment, and I suspect tit will take probably 3-4 months to see how that is going to unfold. What i mean by that is for spending to slow, defaults to raise and subsequently the stock market to reverse.      As Munsy said, we are all in different spots so have to evaluate our own perspective risks. I also and working towards a house purchase next, so sticking it all in wall street and seeing it all keel over and die when the stock falls would surely put a damper on my down payment. I am at-least diversifying to take advantage of the most APY i can for the cash while i stock up my reserves and down payment funds. 
    • I used that one a couple of times the last time it was around.    I still have extra rolls of masking tape, because a return would have reversed the Amex credit, so it was less expensive just to keep the tape I'll never use.   
    • With some of these Synchrony cards i.e. Mattress Firm and Discount Tires you're obviously not going to use them very often. At what point do they close an account in good standing for lack of usage? One year, two years? I mean if you buy a $2500 mattress you should be set for years hopefully before having to buy another. Same thing with tires. Does Synchrony expect you to go to Discount Tires and buy a tire gauge once every six months to keep it open? Or go to Mattress Firm and buy a sheets every six months? Just seems crazy. I hate store cards.
    • I forgot about that. Forgetful me. It doesn't matter the size of the purchase, just that the card is used. I have enough pencils, so I've been loading my egift card balance on Amazon, an itty-bit at a time.
