So, I did something silly this week.
I opened a store card at Loft.
I swore that this year, I wouldn’t make any requests to the credit card companies, that I would let them come to me, to keep my credit score good for a mortgage. So then why did I open this store card?
I think it was partially to see if I can and because I have been shopping there a fair amount. Also, with the card, I won’t pay for shipping at all and they stock so much more petite sizes online than in store. The last time I tried to apply for a store card, my credit wasn’t good enough.
I was also tired and for some reason, it seemed easier to say yes than no that time…
Oops! I’m annoyed with myself. I would far prefer to get one of my more “useful” credit cards to have a higher limit than get new credit.
Readers, did you do anything silly this week?
