Re: First National Bank of Omaha is restricting access to their products based on market service are

I kind of figured this would happen. I used to get Preapprovals from them all the time (Omaha AMEX) and I'm way out of their service area. Always ignored the offers but recently tried to get a card with them and said I was out of the service area. I live in CA.

The truth is out there...
FICO scores: 764 (EQ) 732 (EX) 757 (TU) 9/14 | Goal score: 750+ (all 3)

That's what I had always heard that they were a local lender then all of a sudden they started sending out pre-approvals all over maybe they filled their quota for outside the local area 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?

Re: First National Bank of Omaha is restricting access to their products based on market service are

FNBO CRs said that current card members will be unaffected by the restricted marketing area. The CR was not sure how long the restriction would be in place. Seems other bank lendors are doing the same thing. Wonder why?
