New GE Retail Card w/ GECRB CO?

What are the chances of getting a new GECRB retail card when you have a CO from them that has not fallen off yet. 6+ years ago an extremely small balance was CO. It is still listed on my reports.

It's possible.   I still had a paid CO on mine and got a Walmart.

It was a different card.  I think it was Lowes.

Re: New GE Retail Card w/ GECRB CO?

I should have mentioned that is the the OC reporting the CO and there is no CA reporting. This is simply for a retail card that I had a extremely small balance (charged a few shirts) and the card was put away thinking I had a $0 balance. Went derogatory after many many years of satisfactory use. I'd like the same retail card again.

Hate to say it, but it'll cost you a HP to find out.  :smileyhappy:

Re: New GE Retail Card w/ GECRB CO?

I have a CO from GECRB that is also 6+ years old reporting (and it wasn't a small balance) same as you OC is reporting, but not any CA. I just recently went a little app happy and got approved for walmart, old navy, and amazon....all GECRB. Wasn't the best limits, but it'll do. The CO is listed on my TU & EX, but not EQ. They all pulled TU so the CO was there...

Re: New GE Retail Card w/ GECRB CO?

I researched whether GECRB blacklisted before I applied, since I had a 6 yr old c/o too. They approved me for $500 to start and it wasnt even a hard pull, possibly because I was already in their system because of the old account? Thought that was odd. My score at approval was 634.
