Yes. The PayPal Mastercard is backed by GECRB

Re: Paypal Bill Me Later

I got this offer as well. I can possibly see it being a good thing when I get around to trekking over to the suburb that has a bank with one of those ultra-high-yield interest checking accounts.  Then I'd be effectively getting ~3% APR on the purchase price for 6 months by deferring payment.

 

Assuming one can still bill the ultimate final payment to a rewards credit card, that represents a nice bonus added to the rewards you'd get for paying right away.

 

The catch here is needing to have the discipline to pay them on time when the time comes, and to let the money gather that interest in your checking account meanwhile.

 

Not an ideal scheme for the absent-minded or the shop-a-holic.

Re: Paypal Bill Me Later
It's web bank and is definitely a hp. I've had mine for two months now and love it. I feel more secure when ordering online and I've noticed that when I order via them, it gets shipped super quick. I also like it being a hidden trade and if I decide to run a balance for a few months I don't have to worry about utilization.

Re: Paypal Bill Me Later

I have a BML account and I love it! They started me with an odd $1627 credit line, so I just say it's $1600. The fact that it doesn't show up on our CR makes sense because they don't give CLI and if you ask for one, all they say is that you have to "try" to purchase something that is more expensive that what your credit line is.

Did you just get your BML? Where your scores below? Also, did you have any baddies?

 

Thank you

Re: Paypal Bill Me Later

I've had my BML a bit more than a year. At the time my scores were in the low 600s; they haven't had a big increase this year since I have a lot of INQs that will start to die off in May 2013. The only baddie I have on my CR is a medical collection $116 that my mom said she'd take care of and never did, and it was the first time i was being "an adult", so the bill was in My name. Paid it off in 2007, so I'm waiting for it die off in about 1 1/2 years.
