Bummer.  It sounds like Merrick is shutting the Hooters card down, since they also aren't taking applications for it either.    I would assume they would probably PC you to something else though.

HA!  LOL

 

Not making fun of the person who made this statement; just making fun of Merrick.  I like them and they've been decent to me.  They just don't seem to care about anything that isn't their idea.  I'm surprised the Hooters card is still operational at all and I'm not surprised they shut down the rewards.  The rewards site hardly worked.  I got my last $25 cash back out of them and I had the feeling they'd be shutting that down; when I entered my credit card information (I had to buy a couple of points to have enough to cash out) they did not even have enough years in the pull-down bar to fill out a card past something like 2012!  I got the impression the site had not been maintained in a long time.

I'm laughing with you ~ just looked at the Merrick website and it looks like they offer Classic Visa® and MasterCard® Credit Card Products, but you can't apply without an acceptance certificate.   But you can apply for their secured card though.   So who knows what they are going to do with the Hooters cards.....

They haven't announced that the card is going away.   Just the fact that the rewards are.  And also they aren't taking new applications.
