Credit card applications 2014.

[ Edited ]

What credit cards do you want to apply for within the new year?

 

I want to apply for the TD Bank Easy Rewards card (I use this bank but they've always denied me for a card because of my lack or limited credit history in the past, but now that's changed Smiley Happy ), the Bank of America Susan G. Komen Cash Rewards Mastercard (BOA denied me a few months ago just for their regular Visa card cause of limited credit references) and the Chase Freedom Visa card.. I WAS considering Discover but they rejected me a few months ago because of limited credit history (I got a secured card in March of this year and haven't applied for any more since August). One of my store cards gave me a credit increase on it's own.

Re: Credit card applications 2014.

I looked at the American Express cards (both charge and credit cards knowing a lot of their cards are travel type cards). I think the Blue Cash Everyday card would be the only one I'd have interest in, but at the same time I don't.

Re: Credit card applications 2014.

This is actually a disappointing thing for me. There is nothing new out there for me to want.  In 2013 I added the US Bank Cash+ and the Bankamericard Travel Rewards.  Those accounts won't be a year old until June 2014.  I also took an INQ hit to set up my new internet with Comcast. 

 

I keep hoping to see some great new card come out, and then.... nothing...
