Ok, so I decide I need some new Hush Puppies, and I see that Chadwicks of Boston (catalog) has some on sale. I'm not sure how widespread this catalog is, (I live in NJ.) They tell me on the 1800 line that I have been approved for a $300 limit, and ask me if I want the card., so I say sure, what the heck (thinking, I prob wont get it, but I'll give it a shot.) Now, of course, my similarly credit challenged friends think this is no big thing, and that its pretty funny that I am all jazzed up over this, since Chadwicks is not exactly top of the heap. However, having recently seen my poor FICO score, I am determined to try and revive it any way I can. (Per Q-Space, I need more open credit.) I probably will never use it again, but I must say it was nice to be approved for something after so long. I got it in the mail today, and I tell ya, it put a smile on my face when I picked up the envelope and felt that familiar plastic square inside!! Anyhow, just wanted to let you all know in case anyone was interested, they apparently arent to difficult to get, and I believe the interest rate is 22.8% through World Financial..
