We have a very generous member (NoPresetSnarkLimit) who wants to give you free stuff!
Tons of great info here on CB, let's turn your helpfulness and knowledge into a free year of Amazon Prime!
Rules: The winner will be selected by post number in this thread, post as many times as you wish with as many credit tips as you wish. Total post count of the thread at the contest expiration date will be entered into a random number generator as well as two backups in case the winning post number doesn't include a credit tip. (For all you off-topic posters)
Tips: From advanced techniques to credit 101, share them here to be eligible to win. Try not to duplicate tips posted by others (this means you should read all the tips posted ahead of you) but a duplicate does not prevent you from winning.
Sample tip: You can freeze your credit reports to prevent unauthorized access to anyone attempting to open an account in your name.
Sample tip: AAoA stands for Average Age of Accounts
Sample tip: Some creditors are stingy with CLI's and you may be better off opening a new account with them and combining limits.
The winner will receive a PM with a redemption code for one year of Amazon Prime, please note, it doesn't matter if you are new to Amazon or already have a membership, the redemption will "stack" on top of your current membership. Must redeem by August 20, 2015.
Duration: The contest will end on August 16th at 6 PM CST but your tips will live forever on this thread.
Exclusions: Must have 25 posts (by contest end date) to be eligible for prize. Winning post number must include a valid credit tip. If your tip is nonsense, generally considered untrue, or potentially harmful to others you can not win. Any debate on acceptability of the winning tip shall be decided by CB Admin.
Please join this contest in the spirit in which it is intended; to share your knowledge, help others, and win a prize. Don't make extra work for the Mods by bickering but please feel free to correct any bad tips you see and don't post the same tip over and over 100 times just to increase your odds of winning.
Get ready, get set, get tipping!
