I think you are a smart cookie! Yours is a real success story. To go from 572 to 705 is amazing! Now your wife has a score of 780 (soon to be 800, I am sure!) You are a smart, disciplined couple and I truly admire you. Please pray that my husband and I will be as successful and smart with our credit as you and your wife! Thanks for the info.! All the best to you both.

Your fear is understable, especially these days. However, just as you gave Credit Karma your b'date and ss#, any credit card application will require the same. It is safe; just be sure you are dealing with a known, reputable company before you give out any info. CreditKarma will only suggest safe companies, I believe. I wish you the best!
