Charge it Plus?

Has anyone ever heard of Charge it Plus? It looks like it is offered by a company called Essential Financial. I havent seen many reviews so Im assuming its new. It looks like they guarantee you a charge account that reports to the CRA and do not do a credit check but require you to sign up for auto draft. They advertise being able to use their card in various states at different retailers but don't give much info. has anyone ever heard of this? Is it a scam?

Looked at their website, I dont know about this one, could be a payday loan type deal (the fees for using the card, which I couldnt find). You can check with the BBB to see if anything been registered about them.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

As long as they pay the advertizing fee!  It's probably not a total scam, in that the company exists, but my guess is the terms are not good.

 

- You have to visit customer service to get a copy of the terms+conditions, including fees

- There is a per-transaction fee

 

It is also apparently a charge card.   You own the full amount but for $16 you can extend the debt another 30 days.   Since the CL is $50, this is more than 30% per month.   They also talk about reducing an interest rate, so there may be no grace period either.

 

So, my guess is that most people here won't want this card.   But someone has to get the T&C + fee schedule

 

 

ETA: If you search, there is also a Charge It Plus card in the UK.   But that seems to be a card that gives you access to charge points for electric cars.

It says I can use it at Village Pantry, and that's about it.
