That's right, kids. Stacey's got her first credit card! Scary, huh? ;)
It's probably hard to believe that this is my first card. I am 25 years old, after all, and my generation looooves ourselves some debt. I've always been a little nervous of getting a credit card & going nuts. I don't have the best self-control, but I feel ready for the responsibility. Plus, assuming I do get into grad school for next fall, I'll feel more comfortable having some kind of emergency money to fall back on.
Don't worry - I didn't post an actual picture of my card on the web. That would be the acme of foolishness. However, that is the sample picture of my exact card from the Bank of America website. The best thing? It's a National Trust for Historic Preservation rewards card! That means a portion of every dollar I spend goes to the National Trust. As a history buff & an aspiring museum curator, that makes me happy. :)
Oh, and guess who's breaking in the new card by buying her airline ticket to Scotland? That's right - this girl!
