Re: Banana Republic approval

Thats awesome! even if you were approved for only store card version like youngandcreditworthy said it will upgrade whch is what is great about these cards beacuse you can then use it any where else and not just that store. BUT you got the VISA INSTANLY whih is marvelous!! ENJOY and ask for cli every 5 to 6 months just beacuse they wont always give it to you every 4 month.

I caved in too last week.  I was in one of their outlet stores with a couple of shirts from the discount rack and the idea of an extra 15% off got me this time.  I like the idea of points to earn $10 reward cards and I shop here, at the Gap outlet and online both places plus online at Piperlime and Athleta, so I will use this card quite a bit.  I know it will grow with me.

Ironically the 15% discount they give you is very "meh" for opening the card.  The true value of the card is when they have all these 40% coupons that you can only use if you have a BR card.  Plus you can use the card at Old Navy, Gap, or Piperlime and you still get 5X rewards.


On my last shopping spree, I bought $800 worth of clothing for around $300 due to various promotions that stacked (40% off and $25 off after spending $100).  And it was only possible if you had a BR card.  Then from that $300 I got 5X points which means $15 worth of BR rewards.  It is a great card.

Re: Banana Republic approval

I really want to get a GERMB card---like BR Visa!  But I just App'd for the Clear from AmEx on 01/05.  


Is it too soon to apply for a GERMB?  Are they inquiry senstive?  I have about 12 inquiries from EX.  Smiley Sad


And three new accounts open in the past month (but only one reporting--Chase).  


Should I wait...or apply now? Smiley Happy

Re: Banana Republic approval

They're not inquiry or UTI sensitive at all. However, those factors may affect your initial CL.
