  1. I've been there for 10 years, so yes, pretty comfortable with the fact that I won't hate the job. You could really say that about any new position, but given my history with them, that's not an issue. I never said I would want to borrow the max. Of course I have considered how long I want to work, and how long the mortgage would be for. However, even without maxing out, the added income puts me in a position to bump up from Chocolate Goodness to not so Chocolate Goodness. It's a line that would be easier to cross without paying much more and I would prefer not so Choco
  2. Hi Guys, mortgage newb here. It's been quite some time since I posted here. Been a member for 8 years and this forum was the reason I was able to turn my credit around for the better, so I am back as a new chapter in my life is about to begin. (I don't know why this is big & bold, sorry...lol) I'm about to start looking for a home to buy. I've been a Server for over 25 years and have worked in the same restaurant for the past 10+ years. From my understanding, if I apply for a mortgage, my income will be calculated using my past two years tax returns and then average from that. However,

  5. "One of the great features of a sole proprietorship is the simplicity of formation. Little more than buying and selling goods or services is needed. In fact, no formal filing or event is required to form a sole proprietorship; it is a status that arises automatically from one's business activity." From entrepreneur magazine --------- "A sole proprietorship is the simplest and most common structure chosen to start a business. It is an unincorporated business owned and run by one individual with no distinction between the business and the owner. You are entitled to all profits and are responsi
  6. In the past I did. I can't get my last $1.3K to be applied as a CLI now though. Guess I need to call in to wrap that up.Then I need to PC that Travel Rewards AMEX to something I can MS. I am waiting for confirmation that someone has successfully done this with a current offer. I got a CLI already but it had to be done manually due to a COMPUTER GLITCH. The offer is still there, but I don't think I can convince another human to do this manually, since they'll see that I just got a CLI... so I am waiting until it looks like they've fixed the underlying COMPUTER GLITCH before trying ag

  9. Marie, or maria helped me yesterday. After 25 mins we figured out I needed to log out. After that, she finished it up for me in seconds. She said there is something wrong with the link.
  10. That's the exact message I got too... make sure you log out when rep tries to finish it for you. For some reason, it mucks it up onntheir end, if you're still on that page
  11. Thanks for the update. I've been looking for the post you described, but I can give it a shot with your description of the process. Found it! https://creditboards.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=572423

  14. Took offered cc with a 29,500 CL and added it to existing card with CL of 15,000. Now my highest CL of 44,500. So yes, you can add to existing card. I did have some sort of error code come up during the process so had to call in, however, it went something like this... In my offers, there was one for a sig visa (which I already have) for 29,500. I selected that and continued onward. It acts like you're accepting offer for a new card, but don't panic, as either the next page, or one following that, it recognizes that you already have that cc and asks if you would like to apply for a new cc
