Paypal Mastercard

Yesterday I received a Paypal Mastercard in the mail.  I did not ask for it, nor did I apply for it.  On the letter it states that I did not ask for it, and that it was promotional; but it really is the card.  It also says if I chose not to activate it to destroy the card.  It gives no mention of a CL; basically it doesn't give me a whole lot of info.  After searching these boards to me it looks like they are known for giving good CL and CLI; but I am not sure if I try to activate it what will happen.  I don't really want another HP on my CR right now; but could really use a card with a good CL.  Thoughts?

I have never heard of such a thing... I LOVE IT!

Does it give a web address and special offer number or what does it tell you to do?

and by the looks of last updated scores in your sigi, if they are offering you the MC you should take it and would probably do you great!

Re: Paypal Mastercard

No offer number, just a site/phone number to call and activate.

So you think I should go for it?

Re: Paypal Mastercard

It would be illegal to just send you a card, must be an upgrade to something you already have.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."

Re: Paypal Mastercard

As far as I know I just have the normal paypal account?  I have had it forever!!  I go in phases where I use it more often, but we are not talking $1000's here, maybe at the most a couple 100.  Of course I left the card on the counter at home this morning.  I will look again tomorrow to see if it says "debit". 

 

Can I tell from my Paypal account if I have that smartconnect thing?

just call and see what they say, I would assume it's something pertaining to access to your paypal funds not an actually credit account.

did you remember anything about it saying it's through GE?

Re: Paypal Mastercard

After further investigation it's looks as though it is a Business Debit Mastercard.  Still not sure why I received it; but not what I am looking for right now if it won't give me a line of credit. Smiley Embarassed
