Yesterday (05/18/99) was a good day for me as I did two things.

1) received the first pay-check from my weekend job and paid off completely my Shell card with it and sent the rest to the Discover to lower the amount by more than 50%. It was a good amount that I received and I spent 100% of it to pay the debt and boy, I have not felt any better in a long time.

2) I got 2 offers from Providian and something called "Creditcorp"(?!). Providian's terms were,
a) $ 500.00 credit line
b) $ 89.00 processing fee
c) $ 59.00 annual fee
d) APR 24.99%
e) No grace period
the "Creditcorp" wanted me to send them $29.95 processing fee to give me a credit line of $ 10000.00 good towards purchase from them(!)

I took the one month old issue of Newsweek( I don't subscribe it any more to save money) tore it in two halves and put each half in each of the postage paid envelopes and mailed them the same day.
