American Eagle Outfitters

I applied for a Visa Card with American Eagle and approved for only $100. I am not so happy.

Sheesh, what can you get at AE for $100? 2 pairs of socks, barely.

That's GEMB for you.

That's really ridiculous.  Did you try calling them and telling them that the card will be maxed out with a pair of jeans and that you can not use it because you don't want a card showing up with that high utilization on your credit report? That's what I would do.

I think that is what I will do. The card if offered through GE Money Bank or something like that.

Yes, that is a GEMB card. They approved me for a paypal buyer credit about 5 months ago for $300 and refused to give me a credit increase

American Eagle is sort of the non-soft-porn version of Abercrombie.

I will ask them for a CLI or I will cancel the card.

OMG! Maybe that $100 limit will ruin them before a $35,000 line will.:smileywink:
