Re: Comenity Bank?

I don't know if this is going to be a good intermediate step, I think I'll just garden for a while and wait till I get all 3 close to 700 again

Re: Comenity Bank?

Comenity Bank used to be called World Financial Network National Bank. I went on an app spree in august and got apporved for 4 of their cards using the checkout method. Soft pull on all the apps. Approved for Victorias Secret, J. Crew, Buckle and One Stop Plus. Wound up regretting it though because although they were all soft pulls, my AAoA took a dip. Our household shops at all of them except for One Stop. I shop and then PIF. I'm in gardening mode until the end of 2013.

Re: Comenity Bank?

Well i know that Comenity Bank was formerly known as World Financial Bank who did accounts with a lot of retail companies. I believe they just switched over about 1-2 months ago and have updated their website, which looks really cool now its way more up to date has a lot of web based features for the accounts managed through them. Anyhow hope that helped.Smiley Wink
