Re: My first GE card!

Very nice, Congrats! I had a RTG card several years ago and used it a couple times. They did close it on me after 12 months non use though. Oh well.

Re: My first GE card!

FWIW, they pulled Ex. It's probably in the best shape (Student Loans reporting accurately), and had 4-5 inqs (less than EQ, more than TU). I live in NC.

Re: My first GE card!

I was just approved for the CarCare Card at $500.  We have an 08 Impala that has a leak that the wife and I were going to get fixed by paying cash, but now, I can put a good chunk of the repairs on that card, pay for part of it with our cash, and then pay the whole thing off by April.


Since Brakes Plus has the lowest labor rates here, I can also get the oil changes done there too!
