Roommate Bill Me Later INSTANT APPROVAL

I posted I believe on Friday about him applying for Best Buy and got number to call and they said they would continue for a MasterCard if he wished then told him further processing and would get info in mail. (YAWN)

 

He needs an iPad for his new job and I love me some Bill Me Later and they are currently offering 1% Bonus Cash back on Ebay Purchases and 6 months 0% with just a $99 Minimum Spend so I said go for that (He has some high util. and some missed payments pretty recently... doesn't always stay on top of things... thinking in the low 600's)

 

Instant Approval for $801.00!!  (I actually thought that was pretty high initial instant approval but I also have not seen anyone using a Bill Me Later since they really started issueing the credit lines vs. before it was moving all the time.

No he went and applied through Bill Me Later Website directly before shopping and that was his CL given.

 

He spent about $345 on Ebay shortly after.

Bill me later is nice because it does not report so it will not effect your core accept for the inquire

Discover use to do weird things like this too... I wouldn't be surprised if it's some code to if increases will go through, how long it needs to be... etc. etc.

I have seen like 2462 and stuff like that with them too.

I got the same amount last year when I applied. I thought it was pretty strange too.

Re: Roommate Bill Me Later INSTANT APPROVAL

I love BML. I was approved for 12k last Nov. I mainly only use it for eBay purchases and for purchasing our airline tickets. I like being able to take the is months to pay it off and like stated above, it doesn't report.

Congrats on your roomies approved.
