Apple Purchases - No Financing With Barclays and Walmart!

I'm planning on purchasing some Apple products in the near future (27" iMac and an iPad). My Barclay's card only has a $2k limit (origionally was $1300. reconed to $2k).  Have been hoping to take advanage of their free 12 month financing offer. Just waiting to see if they will be updating that iMac system before I purchase.  But anyway, I was also approved for a Walmart card. In the envelop was a certificate - No interest on an electrics purchase of $429. or more if paid in full within 18 months.  Offer ends on November 30th. Great!!!  I spilit them up, pay them down and save on interest!   Only thing is my Walmart has a $600.00 limit. iPad is about $775.00. I'll have to see if they will bump me up a little. I'll only have the card for 1-2 months then though.  Or, use the Target card, save 5% and pay interest. Almost balances out. It's all about planning and a little luck here and there! Smiley Happy 

 

So for those of you that have been approved for a Walmart card, there might be an offer in your envelope!

Also keep in mind that macing the card and paying the card off slowly will lead to two maxed cards and will damage your fico in the short term

AFAIK all GE-backed cards are SP CLI's.  I don't have any personally but I think Wally falls into this category.

I don't mind. I won't be applying for anything new in the near future. Plus, my total credit lines recently went from $1800. to $8600. recently so my utilization should stay low (about 20%). It used to hover in the 75-80% range.
