Card for Rebuilders

I am rebuilding and I want to have a great mix of cards. I applied for the Fingerhut card last night and was instantly approved for $200. DH applied and received $250. 

 

This is my last app and I am finished for a very long time. Just wanted to share with those who are looking for a retail card. This is my second retail and I am done. 

 

Since we have began taking our credit very serious, we have received $9,300 since March. Now that we have got this amount we are finished until it's time for us to purchase a home.

I just applied myself and was approved for $250 :smileyvery-happy: Do they report to all 3 CB's?

Re: Card for Rebuilders

Mine only reports to TU and EQ. Got it in my very early rebuilding stage, and havent used it yet. I was actually declined for it when I applied and just moved on. Then like a month later, they must have reviewed my application again and approved me.

TU: 603 – EQ: 569 – EX: N/A – May 2010

I am going to use this card very wisely. They do have some very nice items.
