Re: Why do people use store cards?

I see people here always touting Walmart, Home Depot, Macy's, JCP, etc.

 

Why would you use a store card over just a Visa, MC, Discover or AMEX?  Do they give a discount with each purchase?  Coupons?


Because they can't get the credit cards from the prime-lenders. Or because they tend to shop there often and picking up one of those cards would help them save more money than if they just paid with cash.
