Question about what my GE Capital Home Design credit card

HI everybody, new member here...I am a little confused on what and where my credit card can be used. It is a GE Capital credit card, limit of $1000, and it says"Home Design" on the front. Does that mean it can only be used on stuff for home design? Can I use this card anywhere, like Target or Walmart? Thank you

Where did you apply for it? Those cards can usually only be used at the store in which you applied.

IE:if you applied at a furniture store near you, it can be used there only

Big AFAIK on this one.

[ Edited ]

I applied for it at a local furniture store called Dons Furniture. That would be pointless if it could only be used there, it seems like it is such a small store that I could use it somewhere else....the website doesnt really tell me anything either, and it wont let me register because it cant verify my social and bday. So im confused lol

Yeah. Then it can only be used at don's furniture. While it may be a small store, furniture is expensive and cards like this one will usually offer long term financing.

Look into a secured card, of those 14 INQS were all denials?
