Re: C1, YOU SUCK. Amex & Disc, you ROCK

Pretty typical.  Cap One are a good stepping stone for credit rebuilders, but they royally suck at growing along with you as your creditworthiness improves.

 

Amex, on the other hand, is a good grower.  Make those on-time payments like clockwork on your new BCE and they will take you places.

 

Congrats!

Re: C1, YOU SUCK. Amex & Disc, you ROCK

Oh, I will!!! Amex actually told me themselves to call back at sixty days to request a CLI...

 

They congratulated me a MILLION times on the phone.... I really see a great banking relationship beginning with them. I also just opened an Amex Personal Savings accout with a yield of .90%; I only put a couple thousand in it, but I'm all about earning a little interest! lol and I took that money out of Capital One.. so best of luck to them!!! ;-)

Good job! Those are much better cards than Cap 1 anyway! At least, they'll grow with you.

I won't be using my Walmart Discover for regular purchases (unless its walmart related)...I hate their online system. GECRB needs to tweak it a bit before I'll fully commit to using it. That and the APR is outrageous! LOL!

LOL Amex barely exists in my area. If you don't have VISA or MC...you're practically screwed. Ha
