Unfortunately those are powered by discover which  I currently have.  


There's a few GECRB CC's that are on the Visa payment network, such as GAP Visa, Banana Republic Visa, AEO Visa, Chevron/Texaco Visa, etc.  Their most recent acquired card program was the Ebates Visa which comes in two flavors - Platinum and Signature.  Otherwise, all of their Visa/MC cards are only offered in Platinum versions - no Signature and no WMC/WEMC.

Re: Why get a GE credit card?

GE has lots of retail cards, so it's easier to get to start building credit.

I just got a GE card just few days ago Lowes, which happened a card I wanted and I would have applied regardless of the lender.

Cap1 QS $11500, Freedom $5000K, Slate $8000 Amex Sky $2000K, Discover IT $4400, BCE $8800, NFL $1500, Lowes $7000

Starting Score: 0
Current Score: 742
Goal Score: 800
