Elan Financial Services/ Elan Card

My local bank in Mass offers credit cards with very competetive rates, through Elan Financial Services. Does anyone know who they are and which CRA they pull?

True.

 

How long have you been a member of the bank? I use a bank through them and after a few months I started getting offers and after a few more months I started getting offers for $200 after first purchase, which I took as research showed they didn't go higher. They softed for the offers and hard pulled TransUnion when I applied, but it may differ for you.

I just moved my accounts to them recently. I was browsing their web-site when I noticed their credit card program.

I got a Cash+ card the other day, and they pulled EX in Colorado.  I expect it varies based on where you live.

 

I think I'd rather go with US Bank directly, either Cash+ or FlexPerks Travel, and not bother with Elan.

Well if you aren't dying to have one of their cards, I suggest waiting to see if you get any offers. I received multiple offers from Elan and US Bank and was approved for the same limit on each when I responded and all had better bonuses and introductory 0% than the standard offers.

Elan isn't anything special really. They do give 1.25% or 1.50%(annual fee of 49 I believe) and US Bank doesn't so that's good. The Cash+ is good though, so that beats them.
