Re: How many GE Capital Retail Bank cards can/do you have?
@SnowKitty paypal smart connect is similar to Bill Me Later, BML is a hidden tradeline though and doesn't report. PPSC can be hooked up to a paypal debit card and reports lile a revolving line of credit. They use it as a counteroffer similar to how you can get a visa/mastercard/discover/amex or a store card. Only difference is ppsc can be used anywhere you can use your paypal debit card. Its just very slow with payments and stuff. You also earn 1% cash back with the paypal debit card.

I actually have 3.

 

Living Spaces ($5,500)

Ashley Furniture Home ($5,500)

and my newly aquired Amazon.com Store Card with a $1,000 CL.

 

I dunno why that was is much lower than my other GE issued cards...probably b/c it isn't mainly a furniture store. LOL.

The truth is out there...

Re: How many GE Capital Retail Bank cards can/do you have?
GE has ALWAYS turned me down for APR decreases.
However, yesterday a CSR in India for my Paypal MC told me to write a letter with an apr reduction request to have them consider it.

Hmmm weird. Guess I'll try that? That's the only GE card that I don't PIF. I owe $1,800/$7,000 :-( lol

BUT I KNOW the csr's at GE can credit you back a month of interest ;-) prob no more thab once or twice a year:-/

I am new to all of this and was approved last week for the walmart card and the amazon store credit card from GE. But then I was denied for the paypal card through them. I now have 2 major credit cards and the 2 GE cards so I am not applying for anything else but I was curious how many different cards you can have with them. I have noticed here in the forum that there is alot of love for them and that people have several accounts with them that seems to play a big role in the rebuilding process.


I have the WalMart, Amazon and Paypal. I think JCPenny is GE and i have them too.
