Worried that my Sears MasterCard CL will be THEFTED

by GEMB when they take over from Citi.

 

It's my highest CL, and helps me keep my utl. under 6%.

 

I also have the store card.

 

I worry about what will happen once GEMB  reviews my CR b/c they refuse to approve me for their Visa/MasterCard/Discover products.

 

I have 5 GEMB store cards.

Nevermind.

 

("=WSJ: GE Plans To Stay In Private-Label Credit Cards - Exec," published Thursday at 4:39 p.m. EDT, incorrectly said GE won a contract for Sears from Citibank in the fifth paragraph. The error derived from the source. The correct version followsSmiley Happy

Re: Worried that my Sears MasterCard CL will be THEFTED

Here's the thread that we first had going about this. Doubt was expressed that it included all the big CC's, because the value of the portfolio seemed too low:

 

GE Capital (GE Money Bank) obtains Citigroup Inc portfolio of cards

 

Here's the link for the WSJ correction mentioned above:

 

CORRECT(11/4): WSJ: GE Plans To Stay In Private-Label Credit Cards - Exec  (interesting; WSJ seems to no longer know the rules of capitalization)

 

I'm still incredibly confused: GEMB is, or is not, buying Citi's credit card portfolio, and if so, how much of it?? I googled on "citi sells credit card portfolio", and I didn't find any updates beyond the basic 10/6 announcement.
