Got CO an FP pre-approvals in mail. In the trash now:)

So, today I received my second set of pre-approvals in the mail from Credit One with a CL of up to $1500, and First Premier with an approved limit of $700. Felt good to throw them in the shreder bin! Those fees are outrageous! no way would I ever get those cards. Before I filed BK,  I did my homework here, and knew I'd hold out for something better, and I did! :smileyhappy: thank you Jesus! Lol!

Thanks my journey!! :smileyhappy: lol

Feather hat.....they are big sub prime lenders! They cater to the "bad" credit or no credit folks, and will usually approve 99% of all apps, lol!!! Especially to people like me who have a recent bankruptcy and are trying to rebuild their credit. They know I am, so they are hoping that I will jump on their offer for credit with their $75 annual fee, $19.95 a month service fee, and a few hundred dollars for other fees before you even get the card. Once you do, you like $20 available credit. Lmao! No that desperate at all:smileywink:

LOL... While there may be extenuating circumstances for some folks who have no alternative, sure.  But, as there are better options for the masses who are building/rebuilding, then FP or CO should be avoided.  Don't even save the cardboard CC that comes enclosed in the envelope :robotlol:
