I think the good credit bad credit system is sad. Basically people, credit is given to you to do one thing and that is get yourself indebted for life.
Then once your in debt the interest rate is crazy ridiculous especially if you have credit cards that you can't pay your way out.

Since then I've gotten a couple credit cards, my credit score is good not great because I made THEEEE biggest mistake of giving someone a card in my name (Lesson learned, can't even trust family with that). Its funny going from not being able to get a credit card to getting one and seeing your limit go from 500 to 700 to 2500. Thats the lowest limit I have on one of my credit cards.
Right now I have
Only the Belk and Discover card have a balance and that Belk balance will be gone soon. I owe 1500 on the Discover but I'm not worried about that one, can't wait to get rid of that balance though. I'm just doing what I can to make sure my credit can continue to climb.

Second put in disputes to get the two collections off your report. Normally, I believe they don't come off until 7 years after they have been paid off, but many times companies either don't pay attention or don't care and don't respond to the request by the bureaus and you could get it taken off. Don't do it for an account that has only been paid off a year or two ago, they'll probably answer backoff principal.
Third, what types of cards are you going for? Find out what type of credit rating you need to get those card (Try CreditKarma.com, they usually have reviews and ratins on almost every card I've seen. What type of cards are you applying for , because if you have a 592 and still applying for cards that require an excellent credit score, you're going to keep getting denied and hurting yourself. If you're gonna apply for a card, apply for one you are likely to get and don't apply for mutiple ones at one time. It makes you look desperate for credit and ends up hurting you. They'll see those creidt hits. Are you trying to the get the cards for a reason? To buy something big? I would say for you to get a credit building card to start your credit on the right track.
Also, when you got your credit report back, did you any inaccuracies with your credit or your reporting?

last thing you need to be doing is applying for 4-5 credit card in the same year let alone the same day. do you realize how many red flags that raise. Each application requires a credit inquiry which will negatively impact a credit score so applying for 4-5 cards in the same day will !! your !! up.
