Firestone CC

I was approved for the Firestone credit Card today. I have a few car repairs that I need and the 0% for 6 months with a purchase of 249 or more was attractive to me.

 

Does anyone have this card?

Re: Firestone CC

I got the Firestone Cc in October 2010 with a $1200 initial limit. I read on here they only report balance and not credit limit, so I send am email online from my account stating my limit was not reporting on my credit reports and I asked them to report the limit. They immediately replied and said they would do so. in March I got new brakes on my 325i at a cost of $1200, with other work done. I paid $400 cash and put the rest on my card. They increased my CL to $1400! Plus, I get 6 months 0% interest!

Re: Firestone CC

Yea... Expensive complete brake job and alignment....replaced my brakes with original BMW parts. My Scores were around 640 when I applied. They report my limit to TU and EX but I didn't see it on EQ when I checked yesterday.

Re: Firestone CC

Thanks everyone. 

 

I'm very happy to have this card. DH also has one as well and it comes in handy. Some may say not to have it bc it's a retail card, but NOTHING can compare to when you have a vehicle that needs servicing and you have it Paid in Full with 0% interest in 6 months.
