I have done some research but have not come up with any answers, even after calling credit card companies. I am interested in those cards that offer 0% interest on PURCHASES for 1 year. I have a large order I would like to place and would like to have a year to pay it off without interest. My fico score is 722(I am trying to get it in the 750+ range by the end of the year), do you have to have EXCELLENT credit to qualify for these are can someone with just good credit get these? Once I get this card, this will be the last card that I will ever get from a non-credit union financial institution as I will be banking solely with credit unions after this. But I just need a card like this for this time. Anybody have any suggestions?
5 late payments on various accounts from 2002 and too many inquiries/new credit, although I have closed alot of this new credit card out in the past few months since I no longer need them. My credit utilization is below 10%.
No bankruptcies, no liens, no collections, I've never had an Amex but I do have a citi card and am looking at a citi card that offers this 0% for 12 months on purchases and would like to apply. 3 of the late payments in 2002 were on a citicard.
Now that I think about it, I just closed out that citicard account. Right now the only accounts I have open are a GE line of credit for 15 grand, a chase amazon card with a 7 grand limit, an orchard bank card that I am just keeping open for the history and never use, which has been open since 99, with a 2500 limit, a bank of america card that i did not apply for, they gave it to me, for 6500, and a Wamu card that i keep strictly for the free transunion score that they give me every month with a 5 grand limit, i plan on closing out my boa card since i never use it.
