Does American Signature Furniture account report like CC?

I am in the process of moving and I'm in dire need of new furniture and I dont want to max out my credit cards or deplete my savings. I was approved to get an American Signature furniture account at $1500 CL will it report as revolving?  I was worried my score would take a great hit because more than likely the limit will be maxed out?

It will report as a revolving CL like a traditional CC rather than a line of credit.

+1  Maxing your scores only matters when you're apping for credit.  You'll take a ding due to Util but when you pay that off it'll shoot right back up.

No I dont plan on applying for anything in the next year or so, I have applied for all the things I needed in the last 4mths. I was just trying to reach my goal score of 700's by end of year but right now my furniture is more important. I am like 30-50 pts on each bureau away from 700's
