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 went Care Credit, Chevon, 76, Walmart... in that order.

 

Chevron/Texaco and 76 are big out here on the west coast... the only 2 gas cards I'll ever need.

Re: GE

I appreciate the responses.  Would you say that the ones you mentioned would be virtual "guarantee" approval?  I know...with credit and issuing credit nothing is guaranteed, but I would want the best chance with the scores I have, before I take the hard pull :smileyvery-happy:

 

Thanks again!!

Re: GE

I would seriously consider what you are doing, one should only get store cards that will be used, bankcards are ultimately what you want. Good luck in your journey :smileyhappy:

Having a few store cards in the mix is OK, and part of the FICO score determination.

 

In fact, if the rewards for using the cards are similar, I'd actually prefer the store card version over their "Dual Cards". 

 

Sadly, my score is good enough for them and they automatically consider me for the Dual Card first. 

I was going to garden... Honest!
