Re: fingerhut

Vinyl Blazers?   LOL
 
Oh no, you're thinking about the OLD Fingerhut that used to sell the 1.99 shoes for 30.00.  They've improved their products.  And if you can try to shop from their catalog (better selection sometimes) or do a deep product search online.  I've gotten some great name brand products from them.  Sure, they charge "regular price" (so to speak) but it is a good starter credit line to get something on your credit report.
 
Their credit increases seem to come every few months.  I think I got three last year.

I remember my Mom buying me this gad-awful imitation leather (read cheap vinyl) jacket from Fingerhut when I was about 14-15. It was horrible, I refused to wear it. Of course that was almost 40 years ago, so they could have upgraded. Still stuck in my memory banks though. I could never buy from them. LOL

Re: fingerhut

I would think that 500 + fico score would put you in a good position to be approve.  They start you out with a low CL and are not very fast with the CLI.
CURRENT SCORES: TU: 641 21 Apps / EX: 644 28 Apps / AAoA: 4.4 Yrs. / Util. 28% / Goal: 700 by 7/2/15

Re: fingerhut

Hahaha. I remember fingerhut too! My mom loved them. She had an account for a long time but stopped buying about 15 years ago so I think they closed her account. I bet its still on her credit report. You know back then I don't think she even cared if they reported. I don't think she cares now.
 
Has anyone else hasd the experiance with their parents that they really don't care or even know what their credit report is or says? (this is my mom) I told her she should take a look at it and she just waves me off saying that credit stuff is for young people.
apping spree or shopping spree...lesser of 2 evils???hmmm
