Sportsman's Guide Visa.....

I got the pre approval via shopping cart trick, but I wanted my new Walmart CL to report so that they had a guide to go by. So when I saw it report, I accepted it. I immediately called them to see what my credit limit would be and the dude got all excited when he told me it was 2500 bucks. I was like, oh that's not going to work. So he asked me what I was looking for. I just said that I wanted at least 6 or 7k and he put me on hold and came back and said no problem--7k. I am thinking about asking for more upon activation, like I was saying in the shopping card trick thread.

Well...I'm sure it has very nice personality.  Hehe.

 

Anyway, this CC would definitely be better than my Credit One (AF, fees for CLIs, & no grace period!) and Merrick (Very High APR!) cards.  I think it'd be a good stepping stone major CC or even just a nice way to pad UTIL.  And the SP approval is a plus.
