WOW... is it just me or does Comenity seem to be making a run for some market share lately and this in my mind at least would be a co-branded card that is not in the same type of line up as many of their other cards.... I feel just a matter of years ago they were kind of like GE was 8+ years ago and barely had anything visa and now so many are popping up!

This will be on my list when it comes out as they fly direct to my parents.

Fico Scores: EQ- 670., TU 705 Sync, EX 700 (04/20/15)
I'm just trying to catch up to RON1
Highest Limit: Navy Federal Cash Sigi Visa $50k (AU)
Lowest Limit: Target $200
83 Cards and Counting :smileytongue:

Re: Virgin America Cards

i wouldnt be supprised if they pick up GE's credit card division as it is for sale.... Maybe capital one is their main competitior?

@swpopham, I would be very surprised if they even remotely thought of trying to buy a company that's almost 50 times larger in terms of assets than them.

Re: Virgin America Cards

@creditaddict, I agree, this doesn't fit the typical Comenity mold. Total Rewards is possibly close, but even Cap1 doesn't have an airline specific Co - branded card. These sure look pretty.

Re: Virgin America Cards

Hmm... I was really hoping the new VX cards would be identical to the new Barclay HA cards.

 

Do Comenity issue any other Visa Sigs? What kind of limits? Any 0% FTF cards?

I'm not seeing the attraction in this card at all, and I love VX. What a shame.
