I've been itching to get a card with rewards and a CL that grows quickly. I use paypal and eBay a lot so why not the paypal extras MasterCard? Especially with so many people reporting their ridiculously high limits with this card! I also need to fill a gap for restaurants when my freedom and discover don't have them in a 5% category. So I apped.
APPROVED FOR 1k!! Not a bad starting limit for me. I know it'll grow!! Now back to the garden! For good this time!
Also, I filled out the online app through my paypal account and it told me to call in. I called and after 5 mins of automated crap I finally spoke with a few script readers which was super annoying and they also made me give my social about 3 times which was also annoying. They had to verify my identity which is weird because I've had my paypal account for at least 7 years and use it every month. They put me on hold several times and also had to send me a text for verification. I thought it was a little weird. The call took about 15 minutes. I have no clue what he was actually doing when i was on hold because he didnt tell me. He just told me he had to put me on hold "to verify my identity." He did this 3 times. I was real annoyed and by the end of the call when he told me I'm approved and I just said okay thanks with no enthusiasm at all! Lol I hope I don't need to deal with customer service again! I'm happy I got approved though!
