First Premier... I Don't Think So !!!

So I come home from work today and find a pre-approval in the mail from First Premier Bank.

 

A generous $700 limit and only 36% APR Smiley Surprised

It gets better, they wanted a one time $175 setup fee and $18.75 monthly account service fee.


My shredder was well fed today !

Re: First Premier... I Don't Think So !!!

You know you wanted it ...Smiley LOL

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?
