Fingerhut axed

So FP, Credit One, and Fingerhut have fell to the axe to make way from prime cards. Will wait for what Cap1 does with my subprime HSBC Household account before I make the decision on that one.

 

Feels so good!!!

Fingerhut is definitely not a new product; it's a mail/online company where you can order various things...very slow to give CLIs (I don't believe you can ask for one, either; but I'm not sure).  I have a Fingerhut account that was opened in 2004 with a starting CL of $225, and as of today, it's over $2,000.  I would close it, but it's my oldest reporting TL.

 

Edited to add: They do report to the CBs...in case you're wondering.



Enjoying your freedom? Thank a servicemember and their family!!!

They only report to EQ / TU. Not EX.

 

I would have kept them but I felt like they were holding my credit report down to prime lenders.
