Murph, I enjoyed reading your post and the fine details that you describe in how to do it the right way.

I have a couple of questions for you.

1.When using this stategy once you pay off the card do you cancel the card? I'm thinking if you do not when you open up more accounts down the line you are going to show to a potential credit card company that you have the potential to take on some serious debt if you utilized your full limit on all cards.

2.Have you checked your FICO score while the total 47k is outstanding?

Again thanks for the excellent post.
