Fingerhut - blowing up my spam filter

[ Edited ]

Some way or another, Fingerhut got my email address (ive never shopped there before).  They have sent me pre-qualified offers and they send me almost daily emails.  Kind of ridiculous.  I wish AMEX would send me emails of offers or Chase or maybe even Citi.  /sigh

 

One day I'll have better trash in my trash bin!

 

(EDIT: Just check - AMEX still hasnt done an updated account review.  Last SP was 10/18 with the review on 10/27.  They said they do a review every month.  I hate being eligible for 61xCLI request but having to sit on it until they update their AR info.)



Starting Score: EQ 551 TU 548 CK 607on 6/8/12, EX 542(AMEX pull 3/4/12)
Current Score: EQ 710 TU 727 EX 704 CK 719(FAKO-EX 697, EQ 697, TU 697)

Re: Fingerhut - blowing up my spam filter

The more important question, and the one to which I've yet to find an answer, is: What the heck is a Fingerhut?

a website that pretty much approves anyone for their online store card that over charges on everything, basically it's a way into rebuilding credit for a lot of people who don't have the credit score to even get a secured credit card =\  still leaps and bounds better than first premier or credit one imo.

I'm familiar with the entity.  I'm questioning their choice of name.
