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 though...lol.

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. 

 

 

Cards: Chase Southwest 20k & CSP 10k & Amtrak 4.6k, & Freedom 3.3k & Slate 3.3k, FNBO DISC 14.9k Oregon Duck 5k, & AMEX BCP 15k & AMEX Hilton Surpass 7.5k & AMEX Zync NPSL, Sams Club Discover 10k, Paypal Extras MC 6k, CapOne 2.5k, CapOne 750, Amazon 3.9k, Walmart 4.5k, Citi Simplicity 7k, HHonors Gold 1k (moved 5k CL to Simplicity), Discover IT 6.5k and a nice stack of store cards.
