Re: Revolution Credit Card.Any One Have It Report Yet.

I have had mine for a few weeks now.  It does not report to any CRA.  I got an instant 5k limit @ 14.99 with an EQ pull.  Got my card in 7 days.  I got 50$ off gasoline at Murphys (Walmart Gas).  I use it at Publix and BJ wholesale club for grocerys.

Re: Revolution Credit Card.Any One Have It Report Yet.

Thanks for letting me know it dosnt report on CRA reports. I was just approved and dont have my card yet. Question: Can you use the card online or just in person or both and have you had any problems with acceptance of the card yet?

Re: Revolution Credit Card.Any One Have It Report Yet.

Just wondering what the point of having it is if it doesn't report to the bureaus and the interest rate is too high to keep any type of balance on it?

Re: Revolution Credit Card.Any One Have It Report Yet.

one fringe benefit, if handled responsibly can be that a hidden tl may sometimes diminish (somewhat) the backlash from lenders scrutinizing cbr esp. during dark times when they tend to move to act based on heightened (real or imagined) concerns about reporting util.  if pif then no matter.

 

the lowest tier if lessened further by rate fluctuations could almost tolerate small bal for short period, yeah- not paricularly attractive as anything but a pif and promo offers candidate.  i love whole foods so that really works for me to have a dedicated card on items i buy anyway, and to pif.

You don't have to worry about paying before the statement cuts (if you do that sort of thing to max out your fico).

I expect it will report eventually. By the time it does, it will be a well established line with some age.

It satisfies the urge for a new account with minimal damage (one EQ inquiry).

They have money saving promos.

It takes money away from the paypal monopoly.

More secure than a regular credit card (pin required)

FWIW, here's what someone was told at another site:

I just spoke to a rep at Revolution card.
They do NOT report to the CRAs
However, this is temporary
In the future they WILL report
