I wonder how frequently the main agencies reevaluate your credit?
In New York I think it's just assumed that many of the cash-only bars and restaurants are cheating on their taxes. And many of them are very good. They have turkey leg sandwiches.Tell me that ain't worth cash only.
I must know where in NY I can get this fabled turkey leg sandwich. It will be had.I will trade you the location of my current favorite spot, The Meatball Shop (which does take credit cards): http://www.themeatballshop.com/. Last week the special was a lamb meatball with mint.
If Brooklyn wasn't such a pain in the ass to get to, I'd eat dinner there tonight.
All the smoked meat I want
Allow me to be the first to say that if the rate matters to you, you are using it wrong.
I currently have an M&T; Debit card that also acts as a Visa, which I think is nice. I don't spend very much per month on it, so would getting a "real" credit card be beneficial to me in any way?Also, M&T; has a nice feature for the "College" level checking account where they waive the fees for four ATM withdrawals every month, which is a godsend because there aren't any goddamn M&T; banks in New York.
A friend mentioned something about how people shouldn't spend more than 3% of a cards limit as doing so makes you look irresponsible. I will admit I am fairly ignorant on the maze that is credit knowledge but that just seems incorrect. Maybe I'm over simplifying here but I mean, would spending any amount so long as its been paid off month to month be best to build up your credit rating/maintaining it?

My card companies routinely ask to raise my limit, to which I say no.
