Re: Firestone approval

Congrats. How does that work? Did you apply and they were like, "Here's your $1600 LOC." Or did you get $1600 worth of tires (and whatnot) from them?

Re: Firestone approval

I just applied online bc I need a new set of tires. but it can be used at firestone and its affiliates. It said the card will be mailed within 7-10 days. It’s just a retail card but since it seem to grow
Easily I plan to put tires, oil changes, or any other mechanical issue I have on it to utilize their 0 interest program and then request the sp increase for padding to increase my scores.

I’ve read about others tripling their limits within 3-6 months. Hoping I can do the same.

Re: Firestone approval

Definitely worth it.  I was approved a few weeks back and had to use it yesterday for a oil change and filter.  It will be my go to.

Re: Firestone approval

Oh no, I've only been in the garden for 2 days... Such temptation... I have an oil leak and my car is parked in a carport. It is not bad enough to have to add oil between changes but it is embarrassing and potentially a violation of my apartment lease... I really would like to keep the car as long as possible. It only has about 150k on it and it has been taken care of.

Re: Firestone approval

good start, congrats on the approval

My rebuild worked for me, but won't necessarily work for you!
