Hey everyone, i have been lurking for a while, but i just registered!
So i'm 18 and i just applied for a credit card with a regional bank and got approved with my mom as the cosigner (joint account) for a cash back rewards cc with a credit limit of $10,000 and an apr of 12.99 or 12.49% (i forget which).
That brings me to my question, would it look good or bad if i bought a macbook worth around $2799 on the card and then immediately paid it back?
The macbook is being paid for by my mom but i figure if i get points, i might as well put it on my card to help build my credit. The only reason i ask is because maybe they will target me as high risk since i just opened the account? I really dont know, i just want to check with you guys!
