Thanks everyone for the help.

For my first step I went to http://www.AnnualCreditReport.com to check out my credit report. They charge you to see your actual credit score, so I just skipped that.

Next I think I'm going to go to bankrate.com like was suggested earlier and shop for a good card. In addition to Christmas, my wife and I are expecting to treat ourselves to new computers when we get our taxes back. We are considering buying them on credit if we see a really good deal during the holidays and then paying it off when we get our refund - perfect for one of those no payments for 6 months kinda deals. It scares us a little to count our chickens like that though.

What I want to get my wife is a Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer. It "has" to be the Artisan model, and it "has" to be pink (rolling eyes) - runs about $250-$275. I don't want to buy on ebay because I don't trust kitchen appliances and would want the security of knowing I could return it just in case it blows up. Talk about a gift that gives back :-L Not romantic, I know, but cooking is one of her personal interests.


Sticky, let me tell you, from personal experience, that mixer will win you far more points than any flowers, chocolate or even jewelry.


KitchenAid Mixer = You get more food. At least it worked that way in my case, but my wife enjoys cooking. Heck, I bought her a knife for Valentine's Day one year. :-o

If you're shopping around for that mixer Spice one place you could check is chefs.com. They sometimes have good prices.

Tracking down a pink one might be hard... I bet Rachel Ray has a few on hand.
