      Yep. They don't even ask for proof of income when you pop it into the online profile.

      No problem. It's a common misconception. The higher that ratio is between the credit you're using and the credit available to you is the key.

      So here's one for you lovely bunch of .gif touters:

      How badly should I expect things to go wrong during closing on my first house? New construction. We don't close for another month, and I'm starting to think we could've opted for the 30 day close instead of 45. We already did a mess of paperwork and I'm just waiting for "something didn't clear" or "we wrote this out wrong, mah bad". There are surprisingly few house threads in OT.

      PS I am all about two or three fingers of Makers when I get off work in about 4 hours. Agent gave me a bottle of 46 for closing. I guess she's alright.

      They have money to make. Any mistakes that come up they're going to clear them for you. Don't stress out about it.

      That was my thought process going in. But I've already caught one where they had "avenue" instead of "street" and when I pointed it out to the loan officer, his response was "well, the realtor.com ad said avenue." (sigh)

      I have a Discover and they've started offering double cash back for new customers. Also, some of their new cardholder offers often have 12 months no interest. I've been a customer of theirs for years and am currently 4 months from the end of a 12 month no interest offer. I pay the minimum and stash the rest in a money market account.

      Not quite that crazy. I've only seen the show a few times, just find her cute and funny. That short expression in her eyes as that gif played is what did me in.
