GE Sucks Denied For EBay MasterCard

But they counter offered me the pay pal buyers credit with a $800 CL. Since i already was hit with a inquiry i just took the Paypal credit aacount. I'm really not sure how the paypal credit accounts work cause i don't really buy allot of things online. I did read a thread here an saw u can link it to your paypal debit card an use that like a credit card?

And I don't think I would link anything  to a pay pal acct.We use to sell Taekwondo gear on Ebay and after our acct was hacked several times we gave up on Ebay and moved on..

oops, i had thought paypal was one of the more secure methods for payment adding an additional layer of security and payment protection as opposed to direct cc to vendor.

 

in any case, too bad you didn't get the one you apped mjb but i am glad you were offered something that could be useful anyway.  hey! u'r not apping again r u, lol.

 

i had the the paypal visa (basically the same as the ebay visa) and cancelled it after less than 6 mos.  the cs on the card was atrocious ime.  you figure, it's ge, so i shouldn't have expected too much in any case.
