  1. I am grateful to my parents for teaching me at an early age about the responsibilities of money. If I have the cash to buy it and it's a need I would, if not I just dream until that day. I would LOVE to get some BIG screen TVs and the sophisticated stereo systems in our house too but I can't see myself charging for them, knowing I can't pay them off right away(considering our other responsibilities) and I'm not putting money away for them either, oh well.

  6. ....know. For about 2/3 months now I've been receiving letters from Amex for their GOLD card. I'm just excited, they have me on their "potential customer" list. It's been a LONG time coming, Just feels soooo good!!!!
  7. I've had no problems with Patelco. They refinanced hubby's car for 5.9% from 23% a while back. I applied for the visa soon afterwards, the CR told me via e-mail wait 6 months and reapply they need to see payment habits. 6 months later I did just that, got bold and requested $1500...Approved!! Kinda wish I'd gotten bolder
  8. It might be worth a shot depending on your payment history with them, that is to say, do you pay off your charges immediately or do you let them linger? Are the $1400, and $2700 recent charges or an accumulation of them? If the latter, that might hurt you. Never know until you try I always say. Good luck
