You know, Member99, some people can go for years without ever knowing their FICO score or even applying for a credit card. I haven't listened to you that much, but I am kind of reminded of the early days of the internet where I finally came to realize that I had spent most of a Summer downloading programs... which would help me download programs.
I love to build bicycles, but at some point I need to get out of the garage and ride. I used to carry 5 cards in my wallet all the time, back quite a few years, and I would make all my purchases just after the cut off to get 60 days of free interest. With money market rates near 10% I made a tidy sum on the float. But I never fell in love with the plastic.
Just a thought. We all need a real life outside of credit.
Of course, now that I think of it, I do have a rather odd relationship with my Gold Card.......
Gold American Express, since 1979,
back when it meant something.
And a few other cash back cards as well.
