Re: Applied bank

I Have them and they charged me Fees Galore! $500cl.
 
The card has served its purpose and I will try not to renew it!
 
If you received a pre-approval more than likely they will give you the card with no problems.
 
I think they are or are with CrossCountry Credit card.
 
Oh and then they keep sending me a letter about to increase my cl its a $100 fee! GTF outta here!
 
i mean really why would i pay $100 for $250 more useless bucks! DEAD!

Re: Applied bank

Well try for a Juniper or WaMu? If that fails....
 
Go inside your bank and try for a Credit card or Try for a Dept store card and wait a few months and the Preappvls should come.
 
But if declined for a store card. Give it up and clean up your credit some and pay cash!

If you already have two open revolving accounts (Orchard and CapOne), check out the Hooters MasterCard (I know, I know.) I have seen posts of approvals for those with scores in the high 500's. You'll get an AF with scores like that, but nothing like the outrageous crap that Applied Bank will stick you with.

Re: Applied bank

Oh no, please no. Don't get this card. The fees are horrific! I mean it.
 
I had that card and cancelled it within a month.

Re: Applied bank

I agree the fees are horrible... charged me $250 of the $300 CL before I even got the card.  Then a monthly fee of $10, plus if you wanna pay the balance online it's a $6.95 fee.  But when I trashed my credit originally they really helped me with rebuilding.  Quickly gave me a CLI to $750 for free, but then later wanted to up it to $1000 for $100 fee.  I kept the card for 2 years and just cancelled it back in June.  Now I have 5 CC's totalling just over $20K and have applied cards $300 intro rate to thank.  They made a lot of money off of me but also jump started my credit in the process, no regrets.
