I got one with $500CL.... I find it to be terribly worthless.. I'm pissed I even have the TL now..
7/16/09 - EQ 684, TU 691

7/25/09 - EQ 682 (-2) 7th INQ did it.
8/21/09 - EQ 684 Bounced back from the Inq even though none expired. There was a new credit account opened on the same day. *shrug*
10/23/09 - EQ 691

Target not worth it. Most of us got card with $200 CL and it never grows. Check the posts on this forum.

I dont think Target would be a good way to go. Low starting TL and also I havent heard of a CLI with them so I dunno bout that but I would say Macy's would be a good way to go if you are looking at store cards.

Aim to be fiscally and physically fit...

Re: I want to apply for a target card... good or bad thing?

YMMV with Target. I am one of the few who did not have a bad experience with CL. However, I shop there all the time and I used it to rebuild, so it didnt matter to me what the limit was. I normally always use my debit card. I had an instant approval slip when I made a purchase with a credit card at the register. There was a little confusion when I finally decided to take them up on the offer, but I was approved for $300. Received an increase 2-3 months to $500. Then in December of last was year received a CLI to $1000.

Current Score: EQ:633 TU: 651
