Re: Anyone app'd with WAMU lately?

They bought a real shady subprime company and I am not surprised they are running into a few problems.

Actrually they bought Providian but the truly subprime accounts were sold off.  This is not just an isse with WaMu.  This is a perfect example of trickle down.  Evidenced by the sudden ramp up of Amex F/Rs, and AA across the board.
 
I think its sad.  They gave me a really good chance when hardly anyone else would and have been good to me.  Too bad many others it seems did not return the favor.... Don't get me started...lol!!

I am pretty sure the effects of this will trickle down to their credit card division as well.  All I know is:  I need a cli soon to buy a new Millenium  Falcon.  Subprime mess or not.

OK, that's really low, when they yank the PetSmart card...

What the heck is going on in credit land these days? I'm just as glad that I'm 3+ months away from apping for anything at all. :smileysurprised:
