Re: GE

Just curious to see if anyone can suggest a GE card I can apply for?  I recently, like 2 weeks ago got the Wally World card, $600 limit.  SO STOKED, that free Fico rules.


My TU according to a purchase of score from MyFico was 595 on Jan 20.  Wal Mart Score shows at 628 :smileyhappy:.  I know not great but way higher than I was expecting.  And it was free!


Any other GE cards I would have a better than average chance of getting if I applied?


Just curious...thanks!!!


I was able to get Amazon store with a similar score and JCP with a score that was probably even lower.


And, of course, as has been said, make sure that you get credit that has a purpose for you.   Since JCP is accepted at both CVS and Rite Aid, that's mainly how I use that CC.  I also enjoy making occasional orders on Amazon, so that one can definitely be used.  

Start: 619 (Wally, 9/2013) | Current: 669 (Wally, 1/6/15), 703 (EQ myFICO 8/13/14)
