Wait... Santa offers cards as well? Where do I find the online app? ;-)

Do you really want to be an AU on a card with a very elderly gentlement who is only "employed" at most a few weeks a year, and whose business model involves giving away presents to children he determines to be "good" using a list drawn up by himself?

According to Credit Sesame, Santa still has a 775 credit score

Re: Santa bring anyone a new CC this year?

Son got  AMEX Gold, 4 months ago he had no credit score,  added him to my 2 CapOne cards, 2 months later he got his own CapOne card pre-selected approved, the following month he got  discover pre-selected, applied  they called him the next day with secuity questions and asked him why he applied,  he said "i'm new to credit and you sent me the  pre-approval so I applied"  approved $750. then early in december he applied Target  got $1400 CL, kind of sucks I have a longer credit history and more income but only got $200 CL they hate INQ's I guess, He Got a pre-selected for AMEX Gold, I told him he should apply in December instead of next year to get the 2012 member date,  approved NPSL 1st year AF waived,  he is probably going to charge a soda on it or something, pay it off and put in the safe deposit box and set a calendar event to check balances monthy for fraud, and then cancel the card before the AF hits, at that point or better yet 3 months later he can re-apply for a Revolver with a nice starting bonus and get a year of back dating goodness. 


Wife got a Sam's Club card $500 CL,  and $40 off on our christmas dinner shopping. Only signed up for it because of the $40, and I was pretty sure she was going to get approval a couple months ago she got the pre-approved message while checking out at sam;s but didn't take advantage of it.
