re: Any negative for having too many CCs open? - LSUAfro
[quote]Posted by bubbz Well I'm calling BS on both. You do take a small hit with more than 3 cards opened. Whether you manage them well or not is a different story. Having a lot of available credit to tap into can show risk to a lender. Your score will be the same whether you have 20% or 60% bal...

re: Using a Credit Card as down payment on car - LSUAfro
Yeah that's bad luck. Can't predict that. Can only expect better. Sorry you have to deal with that. I have a brother that's owed me money like that for years too. I've just written it off. He pays me a bit here and there annually. Still best friends and love the guy, but I learned a hard lesson. ...

re: Using a Credit Card as down payment on car - LSUAfro
I just did $5k on a CC earlier in the year at All Star at no charge. I wouldn't have paid a fee. I would've walked out. If I'm buying a new car and you won't eat the $100 CC processing payment, kiss my ass. Eta: I say I would've walked out, but my wife would've been pissed and made me go back :l...
