Reverse recommendations?

What card would you tell people NOT to get?

 

For me, I would tell them to never get a Kroger 123 rewards card.  I would probably tell them not to get a store card unless they shop there on a near exclusive basis. 

 

What card is universally hated?

I would try to steer them away from Credit One and First Premier, and try to help them get a better builder!

Re: Reverse recommendations?

Obviously First P. Credit One all those cards that have high fees just so you can begin credit STAY AWAY, and as to store cards I would say just just store cards that will upgrade into a mastercard or visa once that happens usually your CL grows nd you can know use it ANYWHERE(ex. OLD NAVY, AE, WAL MART), if it doesnt upgrade then you better be sHopping THere alot so its worth it Smiley Wink

1 - Anything from HSBC/Cap 1

2 - Visa Black.  Pretender to the Throne of "Exclusive" or ultra-premium cards.  Have a warm body and $495 AF?  You've got it!

EX = 849 EQ = 850 TU = 850 as of 07/2017
Retired and Retiring Cards!
