I don't mean to hijack, but I also don't want to start a new thread with this one going.. so, along the same lines I'm looking at the blue cash preferred.
I have no idea what my credit score is, but I've had a credit card (with capital one) since 2005, paid in full every month for those 6 1/2 years or so. Credit limit of 2,500.
I also have a credit union CC with a $1,000 credit limit. And paid off roughly 10k in student loans before interest started accruing.
I'm only making ~19k a year, but if I get the job I'm interviewing for tomorrow that will go to about 48k.
So assuming I get this gig, how soon should I apply for the blue? Should I even apply for this card? Something better for me? I don't want to lower my score applying for a card that I don't get.
I've never really looked into rewards cards; just racked up probably 800-1000 on average a month, paid in full, got nothing in return and I want to change that if I could. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
