Re: First Premier sent me invite for second card no CR pull?

Avoid at all costs.  Having FP on your credit profile is like a financial STD.

I would not go that far. Depends on which version you have and when you got it .  Not all apr are 36% I know mine wasn't when I had one.

Re: First Premier sent me invite for second card no CR pull?

This is a credit rebuilding card. There's really not much reason to have two tradelines from this company reporting as the older one alone will get you to a point where you can get cards from GE and there there you can grow your CL's and use that as a jumping off point to prime cards.

 

A second FP card will weight on your ability to manage your utilization in a credit-healthy way given the HUGE fees associated with the card.

Re: First Premier sent me invite for second card no CR pull?

I agree! No need to have two of them. As bad as this CC is..."It is what it is". Just keep it a while and use it as a stepping stone. I had to get the FP card back in 2009 $250cl and worked my way up to Credit 1 then to Cap 1. Here it is 3 years later but I am now in the prime cards with $10k limits. It just takes time and patience. You cannot rush it and I do not think that 2 of these cards will help you more than just having one. Just my opinion.

Re: First Premier sent me invite for second card no CR pull?

Hello

I need a more detailed explanation for First Premier Credit Cards.

I applied for a First Premier Credit Card in 2010. The card sent to me was a "Centennial Credit Card" M/C..On back of card it shows First Premier Bank Services.

Is a Centennial Credit Card a First Premier Bank Card? Why was a Centinnial Credit Card sent to me instead of a  First Premier Card.

If First Premier is stating a Second Premier Card is at my disposal then that would mean that I should already have  "/FirstOne" First Premier Card already. Or is a Centinnial Card actually a First Premier Card.? What's the difference?

What is the difference between a First Premier Credit Card and a First Premier Bank Credit Card

Thank You
