I was just issued a corporate card by Citibank.
I submit my expense accounts and the Company pass Citibank.

My limit is $50,000 (yes, fifty thousand). There is no way in H_LL I could ever spend that amount, but it is my department's card (all research materials go on the card) and it is in my name.

My question, if I were to apply for a mortgage or any type of credit, will this effect me? The astounding part is I make $34,000/year. I am in the process of rebuilding my credit (charging, paying every month) and my credit is OK except for a student loan which I am trying to fix and a bankruptcy 8 years ago. I am looking to purchase a townhome or a house in 2.5 years and don't want this too effect the outcome.
