Dear Credit Guy, Is it OK to apply for multiple credit cards at the same time? – DarrylDear Darryl,It is generally not a good practice to apply for multiple credit cards at the same time, if you care about your credit score. There are several reasons not to seek several cards at once, and most have to do with the effect applying for credit has on your credit score. When you apply for credit of any kind – whether it is for a credit card, a car loan or a mortgage, etc.
Dear To Her Credit,I owe American Express $40,000, and my mortgage is in foreclosure for $166,000. I cannot file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy because I live in the Philippines, but my condo is in Norwalk, Connecticut. What happens if I just ignore all my debts and stop paying American Express? – JillDear Jill,It’s tempting to just ignore debts when they are on the other side of the world, especially if you don’t intend to ever return to the U.S. Many people do just that, of course, and get away with it.
Dear Speaking of Credit, I had a long history with a personal line of credit with Bank of America in the amount of $30,000. In May 2016, I was advised that BofA was no longer offering the product and therefore the credit line was “closed.”I contacted BofA to see if there was a replacement product, other than a credit card. There wasn’t. At the time it was closed, it had a balance and there remains a balance. It has been reported as closed by me.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
