First Premier offer...wow!

Got a pre-approval from First Premier and the initial credit line is $700!!!

Annual Fee $175

 

I guess they increased the initial credit line to be able to still bill the annual fee that high.

after first year the annual fee is billed monthly instead of yearly

I am, I'm addicted to approvals and getting any and all credit I can but in the end I just don't need it at all... I have my new Toyota Visa that I'm nursing to grow

First premiere has no grace period, so you pay purchase APRS even if you PIF, much less carry a balance!    

 

 

And there are much worse terms than that.

Re: First Premier offer...wow!

As much as I dont like First Premier as much as the next guy. I have to say they helped me I had no score and they helped me build towards a good score. I think of it like im paying them monthly to boost my credit  I dont use the card for anything I got it paid the ridulous start up fee and now just pay the 7 dollars a month. best 7 dollars I spend all month. I think the problems come in with them if you actually use the card with I have not.
