Iberia Bank Visa or??

[ Edited ]

Thinking of applying for this card...anyone here have it?  Would love to know which report they pull.  I've read that it takes a while to receive approval as they do a manual review. True?

 

I'm looking for one more lowish interest rate card...if anyone has a suggestion please tell me. I just apped and received Discover More this week. $5000...10.9%

Dunno about the card but the bank appears to be fairly strong. They already returned their TARP money.

Another interesting (or not) fact: they bought Pulaski Bank & Trust of Arkansas (issuer of the somewhat hard-to-obtain Pulaski Bank Visa cc) a few years ago.

I saw three apps in a certain credit pulls database.   All 3 reported TU pulls, and were from 2008. CA/VA/MA locations.  Two got the card and one denied.  Scores for the approvals were low/mid 700s, and one with a 2005 BK13.  Denied app FICO was in the low 600s.  Hope this helps.  Good luck!

Totally helps...thank you so much!  I was really hoping for TU or EX pull 740-760 on those.

VEEnVEGAS, did you end applying for this card?  I'm curious since I'm looking for a card with a low "fixed" APR.

Alliant Credit Union gave me 8.5% fixed, has no BT fees, no cash advance fees and they didn't take TARP money :smileyhappy:

No, I never did app for it...I ended up apping and receiving a US Bank Visa instead, 7.9% variable.
