Matrix Discover

All,

 

I am in the credit rebuilding stage. Does any have any information on Matrix Discover? What are their general limits? I have a dismissed Ch. 13 BK.

Thanks,

Phumanr

Re: Matrix Discover

Avoid them! They are horrible!
Your scores look high enough to get a GECRB store card.

Re: Matrix Discover

If the credit world was the star trek world, the matrix discover would be khan.

It looks nice at a glance (its a discover card, cool design) but then when you get to know it (read the T&Cs) you realize it is evil and that botany bay was the name of a penal colony on the continent of Australia in 1996....

:smileytongue:

Just a quick PS...

While the matrix card runs on the discover network it isn't an actual card issued by discover. A lot of people don't notice that so they automatically assume its a good card.

ALWAYS READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

that is all.

Re: Matrix Discover

Curious as to why everyone hated it here, I read the nerdwallet review on the card. A $75 annual fee and a $12 monthly fee once the CARD Act protection expires? Yeah, everyone can find a better card then that garbage.

Re: Matrix Discover

Wow...thanks all...I guess I am not that desperate.

 

My rebuilding is paying off....2 Cap 1's, $1K each, credit one bank...$750 (card sucks), macy's ($800), and best buy mastercard ($300 and $59 annual fee...need to close this one).  I have a new mortgage $276 at 3.375.

 

I settled accounts with some very good cards (Navy, chase, justice, ge, barclays, and merrick)...with settled zero balances, but I wanted a good card for emergencies.

 

Thanks,

Phumanr
