Can't imagine any sane person having that many and being able to keep track of them and I think the guy went through a bankruptcy several years ago. I sometimes see him comment in various threads over at MyFico and people still wish him luck on approvals.
Meanwhile I also read that Bears and Turtles' dad got approved for a Citi Double Cash card even with high utilization according to him.
Yeah... and apparently "DD" got the best APR possible while those with 750's got crappy APR!
Creditaddict is an amateur next to Ron1 who has 120 cards and counting.
My favorite fico poster of the day is this chick
who applied and was approved for two Crap One cards less then 2 weeks post-bankruptcy. She seemed unhappy with only
$3000 limits on each card (so much for "we are a conservative lender"... I wouldn't touch a post-B borrower until a few years after discharge). One of the few wise posters on fico said "remember why you filed bankruptcy" and she said, "Oh, it wasn't for unsecured debt".
learned! I guess when she writes her autobiography, it will go from chapter 7 directly to chapter 13.
