GEMB is still lending...

In 2003 I opened a Care Credit acct for a Vet bill.  I closed that acct last summer.  Today I app'd for Care Credit AGAIN because I maxed out my dental coverage w/ a root canal and decided to pay for the crown via CC. 

 

Amount requested was 1200, I was approved for 2k w/ a 656 EQ.  Yes please, I'll take 12 months no interest for that, thank you very much.

 

Last week I asked for a CLI on my Ikea card -- went from 2.8k to 3k w/ a soft.

 

My other GEMB card is Old Navy.  It's sitting at an 800 limit (still higher than Amex) and a zero balance. 

 

Now if only I could convince HSBC that I'm worthy...

From 700 in 2008 to 498 in 2012...
4/23/12 -- BK 13 date of filing EQ = 505
4/18/12 -- EQ 498
12/5/13 -- EQ 669
Here we go.... back on track.

Re: GEMB is still lending...

Good to know as they shut down my perfectly paid -0- balance account in November!

 

They are chasing my balance on my Lowes visa but gave me a cli of $629 on my project card.

 

No rhyme or reason.

 

Congrats on the new account!

Thanks Trish -- I know the feeling, trust me.  HSBC shut down my 6k card w/ a zero balance.  Not a CLD -- just shut down.  Grumble.
