Stuck with Angel Card...help

Couple weeks ago I was approved for a $500 Victoria's Secret Angel Card using the shopping cart 'trick".

 

So got the card in the mail, called to activate it (where you're forced to do so with a live operator who tries to sell you everything under the sun in addtion to activating the card).

 

Now I want to charge something small on the card, pay it off, etc. You guys know the drill.

 

I HEARD and SAW that others wrote that Bath & Body Works accepts this card - As a guy I have ZERO use for anything that VS offers on their website, but Bath & Body I found a few things that I could live with ordering.

 

Bottom line: went to checkout at Bath and Body and NO option to use the VC Angel credit card.

 

Was the prior information wrong about then accepting this card as payment?

 

Was there a recent change?

 

So as far as I'm concerned the bottom line is this: The Victoria's Secret Angel Card can ONLY be used with them and not another other affilated company like Bath and Body.

 

**bleep** am I going to do ordering bras and silk panties all in the attempt to build credit history. Has it really come down to this???????

The Angel Card can be used at Bath & Body Works....but it is in store only. I don't know why you can't use it online.

Re: Stuck with Angel Card...help

I have an angel card and only recently found out that they're accepted at B&BW also. However, if I remember correctly, someone mentioned it only works in store. Maybe you can call your nearest store to confirm. 

 

Good luck and let us know!

Re: Stuck with Angel Card...help

Okay all of that makes sense if it's only accepted in store. 

 

On Bath and Body works website they also give all the accepted payment options online and the VS card is not listed. So it's probably true that it's only in store only.

 

Not to sound like a baby but like I said there were things at Bath and Body that I could barely live with ordering just to have another credit account that I'm using and paying in full - but there's nothing they got that I want to actually leave the house and drive out there for LOL

 

I'm going to bite the bullet and order a hoodie or something from VS and then toss it into the Goodwill clothes bin or donate it to the local shelter. 

 

I curse you Victoria's Secret. Yeah, Victoria's "secret" is that guys are forced to buy silk underwear in a vain attempt to rebuild credit. I fee like Al Bundy right now.

Re: Stuck with Angel Card...help

Trick with Comenity cards is when you call to activate it on the automated system, simply hang up when the call is transferred to a live rep.   Because thats when they try selling you the credit monitoring and other services....  I haven't tried using my VS at B&BW.

 

I only use the VS card to buy gifts.

Re: Stuck with Angel Card...help

Yes, you can definitely use the VS card at BBBW. I got my VS card in Jan , and have only used it twice in store at BBBW. The first time I used it , I noticed at the counter it lsted the various forms of payment and it included something like 'any cards issued by Limited Co' I know the Limited is backed by Comenity. Just wondering has anyone tried using other Comenity backed cc?

Re: Stuck with Angel Card...help

As a guy why didn't you just try the shopping cart trick at Express or JCrew? At least those items might have been more useful to you.

 

I'd say get gift cards from time to time to make use of the card.
