I went today to talk to a loan officer about getting prepared to buy a house near the end of next year. I was outlining my plans to her on paying off my student loans (pounding out $1500 a month towards them) and her big suggestion to me to bump up my credit score some more was to get a credit card. I've always been anti-CC my whole life but it seems to be a necessary evil.
I'm not worried about the APR on the card because I'm going to pay it off every month. She worked at Regions bank so of course she strongly recommended the Regions card but the rewards program on it didn't seem very good. Currently, I am considering the Capital One Quicksilver, Chase Freedom or the Sony card. Anyone have any suggestions? Also as a side note, I don't travel for work or pleasure so any airline mileage rewards wouldn't benefit me.
