There is a person who shares some of your linguistic tendencies and emotional gestures. Are you Joseph (guest alias)? He likes to do lots of hand signals and gesticulate. Just curiosity asking. 

 

 

 

 

 

Joe has had ample opportunity to learn the ropes here.  But I don't believe he ever really did.

It would be my hopes that if I pay my amount due before January 12th that my report will not get dinged.

 

 It will be my hopes that this week before the holiday is lucretive. Presents are coming in I bought the component stereo I'm going to set it up we should have a wonderful time. And I hope everyone else does the same too and has a wonderful time.

Joseph: I have already posted the standards for late payments and how they might reflect on your credit file(s), for which you thanked me.  It's on the first page of this thread.  Surely you cannot be this clueless.

You did. I'll look at it again.

 

So, it is because I very much like y'all that I will share, because if I didn't care I'd just go off and do it anyway... I am [b]again[/b] declining a "Line Of Credit" offer from a predatory lender, this time, NetCredit. I was "approved" for $850. My read of the very, very long and complicated repayment schedule strikes me as essentially a payday loan so.. I will do what I need to do to put it out of my head. Things are tight this holiday and I explored how to get extra money. Sharing so you all could know, if nothing else.. I did NOT accept the NetCredit offer, it could totally backfire.

Well, I only have one payment left. And that's awesome. I think I avoided a 30-day ding mark, since I never made it to 30 days late. (December 13th vs January 3rd) . One more payment and that one is behind me.

 

I have other things to pay now.

Here is my actual FICO score, from the Experian app. This is the highest it has ever been in my life.. this is not a FAKO score.

 

I'm going to try to not use Credit Karma at all in 2024. Except maybe for when it is tax refund time. I have a card account with them. Other than that.  2024 is here!! Doing my darndest to keep that score there, and higher. My score was in the mid to high 4s at times.

I've also got 100% on-time payments with Capital One for a year.

 

Now to just get those balances down (again.) Some things just going to have to wait.

One of you all is on Reddit. There is a credit forum there too. (Not that I trust it, but. Yeah it's someone from here.)

 

Nothing new, just gardening for now. Chasing the money. It will come.

Question. Around Christmas time, I took my FICO (actual FICO, from Experian app.. FICO 😎 score of 600-650 - tied for my all-time high, 660 to 670-ish - and I went on an app spree. I was able to add to my portfolio, not messing with the signature this time:

 

- a $300 card

- a $700 card (these two are the focus of this question)

- a $1000 Meijer card (I am excited about that one.)

 

My question is, basically.. should I never open or activate the $300 card OR never open and activate both the $300 card and the $700 card?

 

or, should i "activate" them and buy a pack of cigarettes a month and pay it off...
