Looks like the Visa Gold cardholders are getting tossed a bone that we PCR Visa cardholders don't get. Too bad!


Could a PCR Visa cardholder whose account is in good standing apply for a Visa Gold card to take advantage of this offer?
As good as this offer looks, remember that electronics retailers often cut prices sharply in January, after this PenFed offer expires. If you really do want a new computer, you might do better to wait until January & dip into savings to pay for it.

lol, DI dances away from the fire!

For those with the Plat who aren't in a hurry, this past fall (August through October, I think it was) they gave 5% cash back on electronics and other semi-back-to-school goodies. I combined that with a state sales-tax free weekend to get my MacBook Pro, saving 8.5% tax and getting the 5% cash rebate the next month. As expensive as Macs are, that was a pretty good deal. I'm hoping they do it again in fall 2010.

This would be a great combo with black friday.  I got my 1080p Sony Bravia two years ago on black friday for $1199 marked down from $1999.  Although actually I got that on a 0% offer from CC (RIP) :smileysad:

 

I'm still waiting on my tax refund for the first time homebuyers program so I can pay off about $5000 in revolving debt from renovations so that I can apply for the penfed card I've been waiting to apply for over a year now :smileyhappy:  I just hope a 6 month old mortgage won't scare them off.

Re: PenFed 0% APR Offer

Penfed just approved me for a 5k personal loan a few days ago, and then I just noticed the visa gold 0% offer, and I said what the heck and applied today knowing they will likely use the inq they used for the personal loan. I did not get an instant approval; it says pending. I already have the gas card with 15k, and I have never charged more than $600 on it. I asked for 15k, and I now regret asking that much. I wouldn't be mad if they deny me this time because I just wanted to make good use of the inq.  0% offers especially from a decent institution like penfed is always tempting to let go.

Re: PenFed 0% APR Offer

Thank you for contacting Pentagon Federal Credit Union.

The promotion is specific to our Visa Gold card only.  If you would like to 
apply for our Visa Gold you may submit an application online.  However, please 
note that you would need to adjust your Visa Platinum limit accordingly as there
is a $50k maximum for all credit card limits combined.
