I kind of hoped I would create the newest fico buzz, but unfortunately didn't get much attention (except from Alvon and a few of the other congrats bots). Still, I'm sure there were some people over there who tried for weeks to get that pop-up window on the VA website.


HAHAHAHA!!!

I bet they're still looking for that elusive Virgin America SCT.

That's nothing guys. I got a 50 dollar limit on my new Overstock store card and I pressed the button 50 times and got my limit up to 500! So sweet.

On a serious note, I'm close to meeting the sign up bonus on my BoA card and am not going to put any charges on my Discover It card from here on out until something changes from them.

And this thread is in its 30th page. It's a farce with this troll. I really hope he isn't the next FixMyCredit1992 or Bears and Turtles.

You also need to do 2000x more ass kissing to qualify. If you dare to speak about gardening and make jokes about it, 09Lexie will hunt you down.

Mine should be tomorrow. I've spent a ton of money on it so I'm hoping for the best as that's it for my portfolio for a while.

A date with 09! You'll go to Olive Garden and eat the garden salad (at one of their lovely locations in New Jersey, the Garden State. Go over to her house after dinner and watch "The Secret Garden" while sharing a giant bowl of popcorn (in a bowl with garden vegetable art on it). Afterwards, you two will drink wine made from grapes grown in her garden and discuss the finer points of gardening (SCT's, drapping, etc). Finally, she'll be so frisky that she'll lead you back to her garden and...

That's enough to drive anyone mad! Unless of course you're one of the most rabid garden fanboys ever.
