Congrats! My wife has one of those and we used it for the 21 month 0 percent balance transfer offer. Her CLis $7800 and we paid that BT off in 20 months...

The 0% APR for 18 months. The BT options at 0%. And, the fact that this is a solid prime card that will grow with you and be there for you in a pinch are your advantages.

 

They are also making an attempt to add rewards. Still learning about that.

 

Whats your CL, BTW?

I just closed my Thankyou card with them. Don't need them.

 

Do not feel bad! One day they will come knocking on your door! :smileyhappy:

I have been getting mail offers from them for the TY Preferred and the Diamond Preferred. Like twice a week

 

So since I wanted to take advantage of the 18 months BT on the Diamond, I took the dive. They denied me even with a recon. I do see their point though. I have about 3 new accounts. I even said the to supervisor that Id take a low CL but no they didnt budge.

 

I had one HP to give on EX and that was it. I'm just annoyed that I was getting all those mailers and got denied..

Is the card still that black card with the tiny symbols in the bg? And is it a MC? They seem to be issuing Visa's a lot now.
