Some of the easiest cards to get. Great for starters, and pretty good if you app for their prime ("Excellent") cards, in between is...okay haha.

Very true lol, is it true having low credit limit maybe $500 or $1,000 for a long time "6 years" can affect your credit score or next cc limit?

If you're doing a recon with a manual review, possibly, although I don't think it would make a big impact. If anything it shows you're loyal. haha. I'm not an underwriter though, so i'm not entirely sure. Some others should be able to chime in with far more experience than me, I've only had a credit card for 2 months xD
