I am so confused right now. Growing up I could not get a credit card to save my life. I remember applying for almost everyone and being declined, but finally was approved for a student credit card with a limit of $800. That was three years ago and up until a month ago I have only had that one credit card, but last month I was able to open another credit card, and did so I could use it as a payment plan for a new computer. A couple days ago I decided to look into upgrading my student credit card into a regular card. I was approved no problem. Today while browsing the site for a company I regularly do business with I was presented with a chance to apply for their credit card. I had applied in the past but was declined. Thinking it would happen again, I thought why not and applied. I was approved, just like that. In about a month I have gone from one credit card to four. I am starting to worry I have too many. I've noticed as well that I am constantly getting credit card offers in the mail. I have always believed it to be spam, but with me getting approved left and right I have to wonder. Am I missing something?? Is there a reason why they're swarming around me like sharks? I have always thought the credit card companies want people who can't pay right away because then they can charge interest. That has been my situation in the past, but lately I have been able to use my card on a regular basis and pay it in full every month. I know nothing about credit cards and the whole thing is overwhelming... just like that I have gone from $800 to $7,300. I know I have to be very careful not to overdo things. I've never had the opportunity to spend money I don't have, so I find myself fearful I am going to mess up somehow, but of course I'm excited. I'm so confused though, why are the credit card companies so interested in giving me a card and have I made a mistake? All of them seemed practical in the moment, and the only one I regret is the one for the computer. I'm just so fearful. This is a lot to handle all at once.
