Matrix Discover

Got a pre-approval in the mail. Mind you, I am rebuilding my credit so my offers haven't been great ones but...

 

$75 annual fee.

$144 annual fee for god knows what which is spread out for $12/month.

For a $300 CL. Smiley Surprised

 

Seriously? People actually apply for these!? Bad or no credit... I would never pay $75 for a $300 CL!!! Crazy.

Re: Matrix Discover

Totally glad they cannot issue these in Connecticut...I guess they were blocked from doing so after the first legal spectacle with Continental Finance.

Re: Matrix Discover

They must have 2 promo's 

mine said 39% 1500 

Marked return to sender on it....let em pay postage twice on it Lol

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
