FYI - i am on my third house purchased ( i rent 2 other properties out) and i've done the payment thing on 3 other cars and paid them off. my credit score is extremely high
want to know something funny though? I only keep one credit card in my wallet and a debt card, and the limit on my CC is only 3k ( because i dont want a higher limit).
