Re: Choosing new internet service

This is great to hear from everyone! This move is kicking my bank account in the rear end, so any savings will be welcome. I'll start with the lower tier service, and upgrade if I have to. Others have said that the nature of fiber optic is such that [more]

Re: Choosing new internet service

My thoughts exactly. Thanks for this point. If fiber optic is as good as I'm reading (yay!), I won't need the higher priced plan, since it'll be just me in the house.

Re: Choosing new internet service

Definitely not for the cable service, not that I can tell from the initial look at the fiber optics' service website.

Choosing new internet service

Sorry to be a little bit OT, but I know you folks here, and it doesn't seem to fit on the Help With This Stupid Computer board.

I'm moving, and have a choice between fiber optic internet and cable. I'm going to be getting internet only, no [more]

Re: Recurring "device not properly ejected&

I've checked it a couple of times, but that gives me the idea of just replacing the cable to be sure.

Re: Last court date for Juju's death

Can you pick the dog up yourself and take it to Animal Control? Tell them it was in your yard.

Re: Last court date for Juju's death

As a lawyer, I'm sorry you had to go through a full blown trial like that. They must have some money to pay a lawyer to actually go to court on that.

RIP poor Juju. You stood up for her, good for you.

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

I have a pretty modest budget, and live in a low cost of living area, so I am looking at a max of $150,000, more like $130,000. I just don't have a lot of cash. I have my own residence and a house that is rental property. I bought the rent property 2 [more]

AJ,

Another option you may want to consider would be to stay at an extended stay hotel (many are pet-friendly) or in a short term furnished apartment (also can find pet-friendly places), while leaving your furniture, etc. either at your [more]

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

It's not a line of credit, it's a fixed loan. I'll check on the cost and insurance coverage again, and then check with the loan officer. I need to be a little more certain of a move date, and I may have that info after this week.

Thanks for [more]

Ask about if increasing your credit line requires them to an inquiry on your credit report first

Seems that since both cards are with USAA, and I'm applying with them to also get the mortgage, work-arounds like that wouldn't make a [more]

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

I have $16,500 and $9500 available on the 2 USAA cards. Seems that this should be a pretty good ratio? The one with the higher interest rate has the higher limit. Would it really make a big difference?

Paint it Blue, you are right about the dentist - I should be able to stretch some of it out, but not a whole lot. What's happening is that I'm getting dentures, and the lab that makes the dentures wants at least 1/2 of the cost up front. I can make [more]

AJ I was hoping you'd respond. Thanks. I can absolutely pay for this without the new card. The total of the 2 other USAA cards is $4275. One is at 6.9% and the other is 8.9%. I could pay cash for the dental work, but I need the cash for a down [more]

New credit card effect on FICO?

Here's the situation. I'm looking at a move, within the next 60 - 90 days, and am having to buy a new house when I do move. I'll be able to sell my existing house, but the move will happen pretty quickly so I probably won't have the money in hand [more]
