Question about Finger Hut account

I was approved for a Finger Hut account with a *whopping* $100 credit limit.

 

How often do they give credit increases and what can I expect from these guys?

 

Thanks

I got mine in 8/09 at $100 also, then it went to $235 in December and then up to $635 in March before they switched to Metabank.  I am not sure how Metabank will handle CLI's now that they took this over from CIT.

I received a Pre-Approved $100 and waited about 2 months, then I received a $400 Pre-Approved Finger Hut.  Maybe you should wait till you receive a better starting CL.

Wasn't a pre-approval, it was me on an app spree.

 

They approved me for $100 and are mailing out the card.

Just my opinion, run away from them.

 

You'll end up paying through the nose for anything you purchase (interest will eat you alive) and you may as well save your money up for whatever you want to buy and pay cash for it.

While I appreciate your comment Irish I am trying to rebuild my credit and unfortunately I need this trade line. I don't have anything but this and a BB RZ MC.

Do they only report to Equifax?
