Re: Military Star Card

Isn't Chase supposed to be taking it over soon? Or is that the AFEES card? Or are they the same? Signed, confused. :smileytongue:

As you can tell, I don't know how many military charge cards there are, and which are Army, which are Navy, etc.!

Re: Military Star Card

I am confused too! I'm trying to help my cousin build his credit (now it appears repairing will be necessary too) and he has only one FICO score, TU. He has a Tesoro AU (opened in 99') account and this military star card. I posted my question because he just opened this account in Feb and I know TU is the slowest to update, so if I'm thinking this card (and probably his AU) is not reporting on EQ and EX.

Re: Military Star Card

I'm pretty sure hte AAFES card and the military star card are the same thing.

It would not surprise me if Chase took over, they are the issuing bank for our club credit card

Reports to all 3 CRAs. AAFES card is the same as Military Star Card.
The change to Chase is and always has been a "coming soon!" feature and as I understand, won't even be mandatory, it will just be a feature they offer.
 
Great card to have. Really great. They do CLI for good behavior, but don't have the option of requesting CLIs.

Re: Military Star Card

For the Chase AAFES card, they are using Ramstein as a test base here in Europe.  I spoke with the BX manager today and he said that the approval rate is very high.  He also said that you can't apply yet online but you should be able to in a few months.  For all of you in Europe, Chase pulls EQ and it shows up as First USA.
