Hit GEMB today with an experimental app spree.

Haven't had GE love since 2000, when I did the big nasty bk7, so I figured what the hell, since Cap one has dominance in my wallet nowadays....

JCP-$2000

Meijer-$1000

Wallymart-$1000

 

Before you ask, I have no idea where my TU's sitting right now. Eq's about 630??

And yes, I do have CO's and CA's that fall off by mid '13, per CRTP.

Re: Hit GEMB today with an experimental app spree.

'grats!! I used to work at JCP. $2,000 was the highest starting limit they had! Unless you had a large purchase in the home department, then, then it might be like $2,700!!!

:-)
Btw, I was #1 for credit apps at my store in 2010! Lol!

No, I was lucky enough to have an issued JCP card from '95, and it had zero bal, when I did the nasty. It was a wallet dust collector anyways, and will be once again.

Make sure you request CLI's after the 4th statement cuts for each GE card, the Wally card will grow QUICK if used alot.

Re: Hit GEMB today with an experimental app spree.

@LS:

Yeah, I've done my research.

Meijer will be good for the gas/groceries, since Jewel is outrageous by me, as far as prices go.

Same thing with Wally, and if I understand correctly, I can get my TU08 through their site???

Didn't really intend on doing this today, but I decided to hit the one I haven't bothered in a while..lol.
