A long road: My success story :D

Recommended Posts

I'm going to make this a short and sweet summary

 

found the forums in 1/11

1st card since '08 in 2/11 ($400 MC by HSBC)

1st discover card in 11/11 ($1k)

 

then had 3 fights:

cap one (charge off): failed

Public Storage (public collection?): tie [they will fall off next year so meh]

LVNV/Resurgent (CA for cap one): WON! :grin:

 

in 3/12 MC $400 -> $520

in 5/12 Discover $1k -> $1350

 

in the last year i have gained a minimum of 50 pts on all 3

8 days ago i was approved for a $900 amazon.com store card

3 days ago i got my very first car! a 2008 Prius touring package #6 :yahoo:

 

it's been a long road & i thank everyone for the advice & encouragement. :wave:

UPDATE: i figured 2 store cards & 2 credit cards + the car would be enough. don't want too many. Just now i on a whim, i applied for a newegg.com card. was approved for 2k! now i have cards for the 2 places i always shop at. One day i want an amex card, for the costco membership if nothing else, but for now i am happy with what i have. i figured, pay pay off 2 or 3 cards & keep one or 2 in the sub 10% usage range.
