Well husband and I kept getting Chase Freedom credit card offers in the mail. And last night I finally decided to apply. It's 5% cash back in specific categories, and also there is $100 bonus if you spent $500 in 3 months. So why not... Free money.

I applied and got accepted! $2,500 credit line. Which doesn't really matter since I will never use that much, but oh well. The extra available credit will help raise our credit score.

Since I got accepted, husband went ahead and applied as well. And he was also accepted for a $4,500 credit line! (He makes more than I do)

Whoot whoot. I will change our automatic bills such as propane and internet over to the new card ASAP and that will nearly get to the bonus money by its self.

Today when I logged into Capital One, I realized they also raised my credit limit from $1,500 to $2,500. Funny that it should happen on the same day.

So in one day we just increased our credit limit by $8,000. Haha. Not bad.

Working hard to train the person for my current job. Only a few days left, until I am FREE! Can't wait to move into the next chapter of my life. Figures that as soon as I am less busy, all our friends will be gone, and I will be alone again. Oh well.

    Good move on the Chase Freedom bonus! In addition to the 1% all the time, there are rotating bonus categories every quarter which pay 5% cash back. One of the categories for the first quarter of 2015 is....groceries!

    Right! I figured I might as well take advantage of the 5% back on stuff we normally buy anyway. It looks like a decent card. We started with Capital One Journey cards, that are made for college students and people with bad credit. So I'm pretty excited that we now meet the requirements for the nicer cards. Last nightI told husband, "Hey look! I'm officially an adult now, I was approved for the big girl card." Haha.
