Re: Everyone that had pre-approvals for wamu...

They keep sending the apps. I applied couple of times and then they declined the app stating I had old account with providian. That costed me 2 inqs. I got Chase card on my own, which I am glad I got it. I dont want to do any thing with wamu even if it existed.

Nope.  In my case, am already in the door; glad I DIDN'T app and end up with ANOTHER cc account that costs me hard inqs for CLI's and what-not and is grudging about saying 'yes' to such things! :smileytongue:

Yeah, some probably do. But doesn't mean anyone with a WaMu card is going to be blessed and kept by Chase. They're not going to lower their standards for WaMu CC holders permanently via a grandfathering in of them.

I fully expect some sub-primers, but otherwise good WaMu customers, to either be sold off or closed if PIF'd. Otherwise, look for them to be CLD'd, rate-jacked, denied CLIs, and otherwise treated like unwelcome customers till they leave. I don't like seeing it...but you sorta know it's coming. :smileysad:

They might end up keeping all the Wamu cards under the Wamu name as opposed to converting them to Chase cards. In fact, I'd believe that to be the probable route.

Yeah, I don't "think", they will mess with former Wamu customers who are in good standing, but not as good standing as Chase would like. I think there would be some fallout over doing that. Maybe they won't give CLI on those cards though, but I doubt they'd just shut them all down. Who knows though.
 
It makes sense to keep the Wamu cards as Wamu cards, but I think that Chase message says that if you have a Wamu Credit Card, you'll eventually have a Chase card.

Re: Everyone that had pre-approvals for wamu...

there use to be a credit card called NextCard. it was marketed as an internet credit card, was my favorite back in the day. anyway. the bank eventually went under. Merrick bought some of the accounts and the rest just got closed.
will be interesting to see...
1. if cards stay as are
2. issued new chase platinum cards
3. cancelled all together.
 
I would lean towards 2.
 
if chase is going to keep all the accounts they are going to want people carrying branded cards of there own, not cards for a bank that does not exist anymore.

That is my EXACT story with WAMU.   I respect Chase a little less for taking on WaMu.  (Just a little.  lol.)

JP Morgan paid 2 billion for the largest thrift in the US. You and I should be able to make deals like that.

With practices like these I'd think I'd at least be able to write off a bunch of my past experiences as 'bad debt'..  think..  bad relationships, bad decisions, alcohol-induced shopping sprees, etc.  :smileyhappy:
 
I want a free pass!  (And I'm so glad I can stop counting WaMu pre-apps.  Wonder if Chase will attack me.)
 
Let's see..  Old Providian opening TL = 250, Chase opening TL = 4k.  I hope Chase never finds that old CC..  hehehehe!  (Oh, and yeah, it was paid and closed in good standing..  but STILL!)
