Juniper any good??? & How many CC is good??

Hello all,

 

I have two questions,

 

First, Does Juniper Card any good? I have read horrible things about it (like raising your apr for no reason), but I also see a lot of members here have it. Any thoughts? The thing is I need a cc who pull TU. I have already app for Hooters card and got approved, but I need another one. 

 

Second, How many cc is consider good? I dont want a lot of them, I just want the right amount the will help me build a better mix of revolving.

 

CC right now,

Orchard $400 CL (two years open, that's why I dont want to close it)

Hooters $2000 CL (just got approved)

Credit union Visa (just got approved)

 

Any input will be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

I have no problems with them, and high CLS
The slide from grace is really more like gliding
And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid

I have the BJ's Club Visa with Juniper, and I have been very happy with it.

 

They send a $20 store-credit check called BJ bucks with the statement when one reaches 2000 points. All purchases count as 1 point and BJ purchases count as 2 points.

 

They started me at 3K CL last April and last month I requested and got bumped to 5K.

YMMV.  Lots of us have $400 CLs.

The cards you currently have are enough to build credit. If you really want to add another card, I would go with Capital One over Juniper. Capital One is a lot more consistent than Juniper overall.

My experience with Barclay has been very positive.  I got the Emigrant Direct Mastercard in Nov 2007 with a 800 CL.  They increased my limit to $5K on Aug 2008.  I have had no issues with them.  They pulled TU for me in Texas.  On a sidenote, the credit card is tied to my savings account with them though.  Thus, the cashback I earn each quarter is deposited into that account.
